Revenge of the Washington State Nerds


Nerds and Sorority girls. They go together like a John Hughes movie and the 80’s.

Which is probably why Washington State’s Linux Users Group (the university’s largest computer club) has decided put out a memo to all the sororities on campus: “Make us over, and we’ll do your homework.”

In an effort to attract more women to the computer science program (and get a free haircut), the “nerds” of WSU’s Linux Club plan to host a “nerd auction”.

You can buy a nerd and he’ll fix your computer”, their website explains, “help you with stats homework, or if you’re really adventurous, take you to dinner!

But before the computer loving dudes go through with the auction, they’re looking for a few good sorority girls to make them more appealing.

If anyone’s going to bid on us, we’ll need some spicing up. And who better to help with that than sorority girls who like nothing better than a makeover?

While the whole “Beauty and the Greek” (sound familiar to anyone?) event is still in the planning stages, WSU’s computer program has garnered national attention because of it.

Will the idea bring more chicks into the lives of these self-described nerds? Of course!

Will the girls stick around? No f*cking way.


Telling some guy to get a haircut while he spends 10 hours fixing your busted iBook is totally a win-win situation…for the chick.

Maybe if they got Ashton Kutcher to produce the whole thing and throw in some embarrassing challenges that made them look redonkulous in front a huge crowd…

Either that, or just have everyone eat spiders.

America loves it when people eat spiders.
