Ain’t nobody loves a good gimmick like we love a good gimmick — so move over iPod thumb, there’s a new extremity ailment in town.
It’s called “blue thumb,” apparently, and Toronto’s Park Hyatt Toronto’s Stillwater Spa
has just the thing you need: an $80 “BlackBerry Balm Hand Massage.” Yeah, you heard us. Basically
it’s a hand massage with “BlackBerry Balm” (which we understand is a synthetic creme formulated from
melted down handhelds) for people who use their thumbs a lot. So basically it’s a hand massage. So basically P.T.
Barnum was right.
