Cuddly Microbes

P1000955I saw these in department stores and the university bookshop in Munster, Germany. I was told that they were very popular with students. Well they were obviously meant to be educational.

The handsome white devil with the red hair on the left is salmonella and the pale green thing with corners is a norovirus. So now you know what they look like next time you have food poisoning or gastric flu.

I did think about buying one but they cost almost €8 – still cheaper than getting the real thing I suppose.
