Da da ; si si. It was one of their "dadas". Yet it should be noted that the surrealist wing of dada(André Breton) was more in favour of the "objet trouvé" than
e.g. Marcel Duchamp himself who preferred the ready-made.
The "objet trouvé" was selected for aesthetic reasons, was not mass produced. Duchamp's "urinoir"- a ready-made - was not selected for any special charm it might have had.
