    So I am noticing people sporting Pink and Blue Soap avatars. I think understand the significance of the Pink Soap(pink for pink slip, soap to clean out the organization) but what is the Blue soap? Is there a difference?

    My apologies sir, I completely forgot about the Gray soap.

    Please enlighten me on the significance of the Gray Soap.

    I asked for gray soap because my usual avatar "The Sarge" is gray. That and gray matches my beard pretty well.

    The pink soap is only pink, because the original image is pink. I don't think the color has any significance, other than some people are to manly to sport pink soap.

    If that still doesn't help, Fight Club is a movie staring Brad Pitt & Ed Norton.

    The origin of the pink soap was a humorous attempt to have some fun during the dark ages of 2-14. Herv made the soap for the "Fire Capers Club" as his avatar, just for some levity. It immediately got adopted by a fan base that was on the verge of mental and emotion breakdown, and the club ultimately got it's wish with the termination of Capers at the end of that season.

    It made it's return to the forum with the "Fire Smith Club" when our defense was once again bad...but not as bad as it is right now. And that brings us to the present, with a fan base burnt out on mediocre results that our current head coach seems to be peaking at.

    The different colors are a response to some not diggin' the pink look, so they've rainbowed out to meet just about anyone and everyone's color coordinating desires.

    I wish the colors were deeper meaning for codes, but perhaps that will come over time. Like the pink soapers just want him gone, the blues want Gruden, the greens want the chin, and the grays just want people to kiss their ass because they are sick of it all.

    Of course I've broken the first rule of the Fire Kubiak Club by talking about it, but since I'm only an ally and not a member, it's probably okay.

    I believe in prison the color of the soap bar depends on which click they are b*tches to. The pink bar is the generic/original color which signifies they are "untaken" although many of the Bloods' use pink soap. The Latin Kings are allies of the Bloods and sometimes use pink too. As you can imagine, this can often cause much confusion and is the catalyst that starts many fights among the Bloods/Kings and other groups. The blue signifies they are property of the Crips. The Folks Nation will use blue as well because they are allies of the Crips and rivals of the Latin Kings. The grey signifies they are property of the Surenos, the Hispanic street gang, although this soap will often have a blueish tint to it to pay hommage to the Mexican Mafia.

    So go on soapers, be strong in your cause... just hold onto that for dear life because you don't wanna drop it. :headhurts:

    There is no soapism.

    This is a multi-colored soap discussion board, united on the opinion KubiYAK should be fired.

    It just goes to show that some issues allow soapers of all colors to stand united.

    Getting rid of a mediocre head coach appears to be one of those kinds of issues.

    I believe the blue soap is to represent a certain forum members nether regions (cough cough TheRealJoker cough) because of certain vow that was made quite some time ago.
