This is a rugged soap dish made from an old sport-style walkman.

About the title:

"No soap radio" was the punchline to a "joke" I vividly recall from grade school. The joke basically goes as follows:

"Two elephants are sitting in a bathtub. One says: 'Pass the soap.' The other elephant says: 'No soap, radio.'"

...at which point, upon delivery of the punchline, everyone would crack up hysterically except the one person who didn't know the joke was on them. What basically was happening was that a bunch of kids would gang up on another person and tell them a joke which made no sense and then make fun of them for not understanding the nonsensical joke.

It really was much more mean than funny. And having been on the receiving end of this cruelty at least once in my life, it has left a lasting impression. So, when I was looking at this soap dish and wondering what to call it some fifteen years later, the first thing that came to my mind was "no soap radio." Maybe now I can use it to wash away all of those painful memories.
