Hardly an original idea. [DrBob, Mar 25 2010]

It's also a line from 'Good Morning, Vietnam!'
[RayfordSteele, Mar 29 2010]

For when showering around priests.

one-liner in several comic-routines as well as 3 anno's on the HB. zzzzzzz

One day it had to come to this, and your timing is perfect. A slippery +.
-- blissmiss, Mar 25 2010

Oh Thou Questy One, I butt disagreeth that this was widely known to exist, as far as I can tell.
-- blissmiss, Mar 25 2010

Just to forestall some of the more obvious echoes, how about soap-on-a-rope shaped like the pope smoking dope and groping an antelope?

Nope, not a hope.

I thought the pope shits in the woods?

*ope on a rope - choose your favourite.

Misanthrope on a rope, you f*cking bastards.

dope on a rope for all those who frequently lose their stash...

ditto 21Q's 2nd anno. Still feeling nauseous after his first anno.

I'm giving it a - just for the annos. ('insert' obligatory anus pun)
-- dentworth, Mar 25 2010

Okay, even I can't defend this nasty non-idea anymore. I always try to give the benefit of doubt, but the nays have proven their case.

Well, I knew it existed.

A helpful hint is to Google the title before posting an idea.

Creepy-clever annos, though.
-- baconbrain, Mar 25 2010

Thanks for finding this apparently highly-succesful valid invention already baked (actually existing).

Halfbakery's operation being very logical and well thought out and, itself, ironically, fully-baked, and well done, clearly, nventions need to be entered in halfbakery and not just mentioned in an anno, otherwise, we could just type idea after idea in the annos making them half-baked inventions and ruining the purpose of halfbakery.  We do not need to search annos for half-baked inventions, because annos are not actual inventions and only actually-existing inventions disqualify an idea, per this website's Help link.

I did get this idea 2 popes ago.  Maybe I'll modify it by specifying a noose in case the Pope is found complicit with the paedophile preasts.

Also:  Hope-on-a-rope IS a BAD idea, if you think it through.
-- Mustardface, Mar 26 2010

my objection was more with it being a baked joke that I've heard several times on TV, rather than a cut'n'paste (not trying to imply that anything more was required though) from an anno(s) or the 5,000'ish valid Google hits.

Can a Pope be impeached;-)

Someone will suggest Pope Idol next.
-- marklar, Mar 29 2010

I think i first thought this some time during the reign of Paul VI, but it probably depends on when Soap On A Rope first came out.

Incidentally, if you look Soap On A Rope up on Wikipedia, it sends you somewhere totally unexpected.

How about Pope On a Goat?

Two Popes One Soap.
-- nineteenthly, Mar 29 2010

This has the scope to become something of a trope.
-- Wrongfellow, Mar 29 2010

This is more of a slippery slope...

How about those strange ball type thingies that get put, well you know where?

Poop on a rope?
-- Ling, Mar 29 2010

that one comes on a loop (of rope)

I've a funny feeling they may display one of these in Lewes on Bonfire night

I keep my astronomical equipment suspended by means of a taught piece of twisted cord... Yes, that's right, Telescope on a Rope.

My fiance and I were going to run away together and get married on an incline... Yes, that's right, Elope on a Slope.

All of my cleaning products are this one, specific purplish-brown colour... Yes, that's right, all my soap is taupe.

I much prefer my illegal pharmeceutical solutions to have been filtered through charcoal filters as opposed to diamond ones... Yes, that's right, Dope filtered by the appropriate Allotrope (of Carbon)

I like eating baby calves that've been hammered and cooked in knitted footwear... Yes, that's right, Veal Escalope in a Sock.

Now, if Pope on a Rope was like one of those dancing Elvis figures you can hang in your car, that dance on the parcel shelf, I would conceivably buy one. Especially with the funky white suit, pointy hat and shepherd's crook. Bonus points if his free arm is raised in benediction, so he can bless tailgaters and passing pedestrians.

Soap? Nope.
-- BunsenHoneydew, Apr 07 2010

Actually, an endoscope on a rope could be quite useful. You could insert it into the appropriate orifice, maybe recording (though then you'd be doing it blind), then pull it out with the string like a tampon.

Archbishop on a rishop?
