An article in Newsweek alerted me to a company that produces stuffed-toy microbes. It really does! I’m weird, but I think they’re really cute. (Not that I’m interested in encounters with the real deal.)

According to the article, the shop in Harvard’s Square that sells the germs reports that gonorrhea is a favorite, especially around Valentine’s Day. Cynical? Realistic? Sick humor?

The next time I go in a toy store, I’ll be on the lookout for more germs than usual.
