Nerd Fun: My Favorite Microbe
What? Microbes don’t have feelings too? The site sells:
…stuffed animals that look like tiny microbes—only a million times actual size! Now available: The Common Cold, The Flu, Sore Throat, Stomach Ache, Cough, Ear Ache, Bad Breath, Kissing Disease, Athlete’s Foot, Ulcer, Martian Life, Beer & Bread, Black Death, Ebola, Flesh Eating, Sleeping Sickness, Dust Mite, Bed Bug, and Bookworm (and in our Professional line: H.I.V. and Hepatitis).
Each 5-to-7 inch doll is accompanied by an image of the real microbe it represents, as well as information about the microbe.
Typhoid is kind of cute. He just might be My Favorite Microbe. I think it’s that funky twirly hat he’s wearing.
I’m scaring myself.
