And people wonder where I get my ideas…

People always ask writers where they get their ideas. What I want to know is, where do microbiologists get their ideas? What kind of person looks at a bug and thinks, “Hey, I bet if we isolate protein from a bunch of cockroach brains and sprinkle it on stuff, it”ll cure something!”

I’m sure their moms are proud, but microbiologists are very strange people.
