Bars of soap

CBS News : Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison Wednesday for his rape and criminal sex act convictions. More than 80 women, many of them in the entertainment industry, have accused Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment and six women testified against the disgraced movie producer during the weeks-long trial.

Facebooker : Ol' Harvey's next conversation with his attorney should include a request for several bars of soap-on-a-roap.

- Hi everyone! I understand the meaning of "bars of soap". But what does "bars of soap-on-a-roap" mean in this case?

Thanks a lot!

Steve, Steve, Steve...Google "soap on a rope" and read the Wikipedia article explaining what it is. Now Google "dropping the soap in prison". Have a read and it should all become (painfully) clear.

trolley : Thank you very much for your answer. In fact, before I posted I had Googled "soap on a roap" and "don't drop the soap". Now that you mention it, "roap" was a typo. I thought it was slang or something else.
