In the 90's, the government of Brasília faced an alarming epidemic of Fournier Infection.
This nasty disease is a necrotic infection, caused by low standards of hygiene in the genital area and has similar effect to the ever forbidden Lico chemical.
Concerned by the fact that all male population of Brasilia could loose it's sexual organ, and thus considerably reducing population and economic growth in the short term, the government created a special soap containing chemical agents to treat the infection.
A poem to instruct the population on the use of the soap, named Krah-Krah, aired on TV, radio, as well published in newspapers and magazines.
The poem was an acclaimed piece nationwide, winning several awards, including a "Troféu Impresa" in the year of 1992.

Doesn't let the ball's hair knot out
Doesn't let the ball's hair
curl with the ass'
