Special Soap For Geeks Fights Funk

This may look like a Nintendo game cartridge, but it's actually special bath soap made just for geeks to fight the funk after hours of gaming.

INDIANAPOLIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Playing Dungeons & Dragons all day can sure leave a geek smelling funky.

Good thing there’s “Geek Soap,” giving nerds something to wash up with that only they can truly appreciate.

The soaps are handmade by Lesley Karpiuk in her kitchen in Indianapolis and are shaped like icons of dweebery, such as old Nintendo game cartridges, Dungeons & Dragons dice, and a binary number sequence.

Karpiuk assures the soaps are accurate in their dorky depictions since she just so happens to be a “huge geek” herself, and believes the bars are essential to maintaining freshness during the nerdiest moments.

Says Karpiuk: “Geeks gotta bathe sometime. You don’t want to be the guy or girl that smells if you’re going to have an all-night gaming marathon.”

Luckily, they can always “play D&D in the shower” and fight grime as they pretend to fight dragons and ogres.
