And don't judge a microbe by the symptoms it causes! You know why you don't like getting sick? Why you think illnesses are gross and yucky and horrible?
It's because you haven't gotten up close and personal with them to see what they are truly like. ThinkGeek returns to What We Covet, this time with a line of giant plush microbes. Adorable giant plush microbes.
I will concede that Diarrhea and Toxic Mold are a little, well, not as cute as MRSA or the White Blood Cell. E. Coli looks a little bit like the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Cthulhu. But Beer Yeast and Mange? They're just so huggable!
These blown-up and fuzzified versions of common illnesses and cells also make great gift ideas. Give Kissing Disease to your One True Love! Throw The Plague at people who get on your nerves. But if you feel the need to give someone Anthrax, do it in person.
Buy through ThinkGeek for $6.99-8.99.
PS: I have recently learned that the Tauntaun sleeping bag is on sale for the low, low price of $79.99! Buy, buy, buy! And with the savings, you can get an extra one for me!
