Next time you go to the South Pas Farmers Market, check out the Bubble Man. Seriously, this man is to bubbles what Doris Kearns Goodwin is to presidents. I had no idea the creation and manufacture of bubble solution (or "bubble juice" as those in the know call it) was wrought with so much intrigue. Fun fact: did you know that the now defunct Tootsie Toys used to send tanker ships full of water from Lake Michigan all the way to China to use as the base for the company's prized solution? Well, now you do.
