Soap Taps

Just to make extra sure that people wash their hands
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,

A bar of soap, mounted onto a tap, so that when you use the sink, your hands get soapy, so you have to wash it off, so that those criminals (such as me and the other 90%, I mean, come on, how many of you properly scrub your hands every time you go to the loo?) who hardly ever use soap after going to the toilet, will have to get the soap off their hands...

       Soap, on the same tap as the water is? Mounted where the tap handle or knob is? As opposed to a separate tap for soap (which exists for liquid soap)? There's an immense hygiene problem with soap that everyone gets to touch prior to washing, in that the soap itself harbours a lot of bad stuff that you really wouldn't want to realise, especially in the semi-wet goop around it.

       Perhaps a better idea would be a branch of nice appealing shrubbery above the mirrors. This shrubbery harbours birds, such as canaries, finches and other sorts that might be going cheep at the time. These would inevitably, due to the quantity of birds times the probability plus the shock of being frightened by humans, shit on the hands of those reaching out to the taps. This would necessitate proper washing.

       I was meaning on those taps where you have to push the button down, so as that people won't be in a never ending cycle of wash, soap, wash, soap, until they get fustrated.

       This is used in prisons, that much is clear.
