There’s something about the shower that makes transforming oneself into someone else—a singer, an acccctor!, a sailor, John Leguizamo from The Pest—seem so natural, and so insanely fun. And now, with a new ‘Archaeology Soap’ from ThinkGeek, we can all add paleontologist to our list of shower-exclusive occupations.
First off, if your “Hey that’s not right” radar went off due to the whole “Archaeology is about the study of human history, not dino history” error, then you’re not alone! In fact, ThinkGeek mentions in their copy for the Archaeology Soap that its supplier should’ve labeled it “Paleontology Soap.” ThinkGeek says this mislabeling will be fixed with new generations of the soap, which are probably going to happen since the product is currently sold out.
If the soap, first spotted on My Modern Met, isn’t sold out when you go to order it, prepare to become the steamy bathroom equivalent of Alan Grant. As you dig through the relatively large 3-inch soap (with your filthy body), you’ll also be simultaneously mining your way down through four distinct layers of cleansing strata: and according to ThinkGeek, “There’s pumice mixed into the bottom layer and bentonite clay in the second layer so the ‘ground’ will wear away differently.”
The part of this soap that’s really… Dino-Mite! however is, of course, the two dinosaurs that you can unearth while gettin’ the ol’ scrub-in-the-tub on. But considering the ultimate find amidst these soapy sediments is a pair of tiny plastic nubs, it seems like the real winner of this shower dig is cleanliness.
What do you think about this “Archaeology Soap”? Are you totally digging it, or do you just wanna go Ross Geller-nuts and boycott the soap for the branding error? Let us know in the comments below!
