Adorable Microbes

Operating on the theory that if you cover something in plush fake fur and give it glassy doll eyes it will be cute, I give you Giant Microbes:

First, there's blue Cholera and yellow Bifido, with their friends Trichomoniasis (purple) and syphillis (the pink wormy guy).

And then there's polka-dotted Rubella and orange Athlete's Foot, lying on a bed of hepatitis and various amoebae.

There was also a cluster of attached brown fuzzy spheres wearing a black cape, much larger than all of the other microbes. It was labeled MRSA (multiple-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus), the super bug. As the website says, the toy is "Suitable for infectious disease doctors and hospital staff." And such a bargain, at only $9.95!

Yup, adorable.

Yes, as long as they stay that large and don't try to get into my body!
