A periodic look at Obama tchotchkes to memorialize the big day.
obamasoap.jpg Item: Obama Soap on a Rope
Maker: Dugshop, a collective of artists who specialize in vegan-friendly novelty soap.
Cost: $15 plus $5 shipping; proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity
Why: From the Etsy.com advertisement, "We made him purple, because we here at dugshop feel that he’s a true uniter, there are no red or blue states, we’re all purple. (we promise not to make you sing Kumbaya...)."
Inauguration Watch Verdict: Funny idea. But looks a little too much like this famous movie, or like this famous painting, for our taste.

The photo above comes from Dugshop.
