PRETTY MUCH EVERYWHERE (Just Laugh) – Donning microscopic party hats and noisemakers just like their multicellular counterparts, bacteria from mud puddles to runny noses to the doorknobs of office restrooms the world over raised their glasses to ring in the new year with promises of an exciting and prosperous time to be a microbe in 2015.
“Don’t get me wrong – 2014 was great with some infections and the whole Greek yogurt craze,” a representative for Green Bacteria told us via phone, “but now that we’re in a new year, look out because 2015 is going to be a year to remember for 5 nonillion bacteria the world over.”
“Think the world of cheese.”
“Think environmental clean-up.”
“There’s a family of four in Michigan that’s going to have one doozy of a spring break down in Cabo!”
“It’s an exciting time to be a prokaryotic microorganism,” Green Bacteria told us, “and whether you find us on a random surface or in the sneeze of a fellow airline passenger or even in your local grocer’s deli section, we can’t wait to show you firsthand what Green Bacteria is going to be doing next.”
