Did you know in 2014 a 22-year-old Khiry Johnson took the stand on the syndicated daytime television show Divorce Court and accused his significant other, Erin Rodgers, of being sexually untrue. “We both have iPhones, and we both have emojis,” Johnson testified. “Now, I feel like certain emojis shouldn’t just get sent to anybody. I’m referring to emojis with the heart eyes. Blowing a heart kiss. … Even the eggplant that some people refer to as male genitalia.”
“I hadn’t heard about the eggplant,” Judge Lynn Toler interjected. “There’s an eggplant?”
“Yes. An eggplant emoji,” Johnson replied. “But it’s referred to as male genitalia … in … conversations.”
The eggplant emoji has passed the banana and has risen to become America’s dominant phallic vegetable. It wasn’t too long ago that comparing a penis to an eggplant inspired associations with horrific, intimate trauma. But now, the eggplant readily connotes a quite healthy package. The Instagram account @eggplant has posted just one innocent photo of the fruit, and amassed over 4000 tittering comments from browsers in the know.
The eggplant has become synonymous with the penis as an emoji. Other fruits and vegetables more approximate the male anatomy but the eggplant has become the go to emoji to represent a man’s junk. The Japanese eggplant is more phallic than the aubergine eggplant. But when sending a message written on a vegetable, the aubergine eggplant carries weight.
