THE LITTLEST GERM, A LOON FABLE

April 11, 2011

The littlest germ moped.

“I never get to do anything,” it said.

While all of the other germs were out and about causing disease, the littlest germ was not allowed to leave the germ house and was constantly reminded that it was too small to cause any measurable misery. Vowing to itself to prove them all wrong, the littlest germ hitched a ride on a breeze and wafted into the nearest town.

Miracle of miracle, the littlest germ not only ravaged the small town, it decimated the entire planet, stripping it of every sentient life form bigger than a single M&M, plain, not peanut.

Moral: No tourniquet is too small to aid a broken heart.
