A craftsperson by the name of “twoeggplants” has listed what he or she is calling “Gray BlackBerry PDA Phone Soap” for sale on This pseudo-BlackBerry is made for trips to the tub. Literally.

Ever the seeker of bizarre and amusing smartphone-related products, I just couldn’t resist giving ol’ eggplants a plug. The $4.99 bar of vegetable-based, BlackBerry soap is apparently made to order, as there’s only one available. And I think it was a wise idea on the part of the seller to hold off on mass production until demand for such a cleansing-gadgetish-creation can be accurately gauged.

It’s modeled after a BlackBerry 7100g, I believe, and it’s actually a fairly accurate depiction of the device…except for the iPhone-like icons that appear on its display. Not sure if that’s just a cruel joke or what…

Regardless, the BlackBerry soap is custom made to order, and interested parties can choose between scented and unscented varieties—the one pictured apparently smells like “chocolate-covered strawberries” and weighs less than 2.5 ounces.

And if that still doesn’t slake your craving for absurd, smartphone-themed products and accessories, read “The 14 Silliest Smartphone Accessories: How to Humiliate a BlackBerry, Embarrass an iPhone.” You’ll even find a product that lets you take your real BlackBerry into the shower with you without rendering it completely useless.
