Tech Soap: The Only Way You're Scamming a Nerd Into Getting Clean

You’re a tech geek. You’re dirty from logging 20 hours a day in your bedroom/office/cubicle/basement in front of things with screens. Dude, you need a bath.

Now, I hear your complaints: ‘regular soap is so… un-tech!’ Yeah, I hear that. But last time I attempted to simply blast my naked self with compressed LCD cleaner, it didn’t work so well. An alternative would have to be found.

However, thanks to the dude (or dudette? I suffer from geek gender bias – I admit it and I’m sorry) at Two Eggplants, we can finally scrape away the layers of filth keeping the ladies at bay and enjoy a rich social life, all thanks to Game Boy Soap. That’s right – finally, a soap worthy of contact with your pasty hide.

The amount of detail that’s gone into this tribute to the Allfather of Portable Tech is just stunning, and somewhat presents a problem: with soap this beautifully-crafted (not to mention expensive ($14.99)), you wouldn’t really want to use it at all, would you? Me, I’m content to stay dirty while my Game Boy soap just chills on my living room shelf collecting dust.

If you still need a nerdy way to get clean/are loyal to another brand, Two Eggplants also offers iPhone (pictured) and Motorola Droid soap.

    Actually ran into a couple of folks from at an art fair in Indiana. Some great soap for geeks there, as well.
