De schatten van oude Jouke (Old Jouke's Treasures)1977 by Jopie Huisman

"Old Jouke never married. Three times a year he swam in the canal. When he was 87, he had to go - healthy as a fish - to the nursing home, because it was feared that he would pollute it. I found this soap among his belongings. It was his mother's, who had been dead for 37 years. "Did you keep it to remind you of your mother?" I asked.
"Oh no, man, I never had any use for soap. It's good for nothing. If God had wanted us to wash wouldn't he have made it rain soapy water?" www.bedrijfsdecoratie.
