Here, honey, hug your germ
There is a website called GiantMicrobes.com. They sell plush stuffed animal versions of many, many deadly diseases.
I could not make this up.
Among their best sellers—e. coli and mad cow. You know—cuddly e.coli and cuddly mad cow.
They even have one of my daughter’s affliction, MRSA.
I asked her did she want a stuffed version of it.
She said nope.
Each comes with a rather scientific explanation of the disease. I learned about this because they were seeking a writer to do these “tags.”
I still would like to do it. That way, I could ask, Who buys these?
My daughter did ask did they have STDs. I didn't ask why.
