Ahhhh, 1987 Dove, a good year...

I remember last night, whilst taking my shower, picking up the shampoo bottle and thinking, "Ahh, a good year, this vintage".

I do not know why I thought that.

But people buy things because the are old, especially wine and antiques, and so I thought someone could buy up bottles of shampoo and soap, store them for a long time, and then sell the as Vintage Soap and Shampoo.

Make some money, sell certain shampoo and soap at higher prices because they are "better years" than others.

       I don't know about shampoo, which should probably last quite a while, especially if shaken before use, but soap could get pretty mangy. If it doesn't dry out completely, it may well go moldy.

       [+] changed to [ ] with title change. '94 was a good year for most California tomato soup, due to an early wet season.

       I once posted an idea for "Finely Aged Peanut Butter", or something like that. I think it was determended to be a non-idea.   

       Taking an existing product and aging it is a stretch. But if you had kept it as soup, I too would have considered it for a possible +.   

       Age may actually have changed the original into something totally, (gross), new.

       hmmm, vintage nipple paint...

       I seem to recall a company which bought the recipes for perfumes that had been discontinued then reintroducing them. It seems to me that there might be more market for that. People like smelling long ago smells. They have a direct hotline into the brain.

       what's your problem, half?

       Say, what about vintage shampoo soup? Soup that once cooked, the leftover could then be used as a shampoo?   

       Cream of Tomato with a hint of herbal essense?
Tortillini and vegtable, pureed to a fine pea green goo.
  

       Hungry in the shower? Pull a Kramer.

       po: I knew your nipples were collector's items, but vintage?

       //po: I knew your nipples were collector's items// Whoa! They are? Now I have to go dig my '1999 Po Nipples' out from my collection and put them on Ebay.

       Probably had something to do with the cold winter.

       "what's your problem, half?".
You tell me.
Just forget it. Someone else has made better reference to the same thing, as per normal.
  

       I'll just shut up now. Oh, and whatever it was I did to you...I didn't.   

       Ta.
