This relatively cheap and easy way to make your computer smell like shrimp works well for both Mac and PC!

Just follow these simple instructions:

  • Go to your local seafood market or grocery store and purchase 2lbs of raw, unpeeled shrimp.
  • Place the shrimp, along with your computer, into a large draw-string garbage bag.
  • Cinch the bag tightly and place it in the trunk of your car for at least 3 days. If you prefer an especially pungent computer, you may keep it sequestered for up to 3 months—any longer and you may find it necessary to burn your car.
  • Try and park in the direct sunlight as much as possible during this time and DO NOT open the trunk. This step is very important.
  • When the shrimp/computer mixture has sat for the allotted amount of time, carefully remove the garbage bag from the trunk and extract its contents.
  • Trying

    to gag, gently clean your computer with unscented baby wipes. Remove as much of the slime as you can, but it’s okay if you don’t get it all off. It is highly advised that you discard the shrimp and resist the temptation to make ceviche.

All done! Your computer will now smell like shrimp for up to 6 months.

Note: The proportions provided in this instructional are for laptop computers only. If you would like to try this with a desktop computer, use a larger 55-gallon garbage bag and increase the shrimp to 4–5lbs (depending on computer size and included accessories). You may need to experiment with the proper amount of shrimp and trunk time to achieve the desired results.
* Disclaimer: This process is very effective but will likely destroy your computer.
