I'd like to see either smallpox (which would just be a variation of form from the chickenpox they already have), or my personal favorite:

Lactobacillus acidophilus: one of the major cultures for yoghurt, smetana, creme fraiche et al, as well as the original starter for pickling (a la lactofermentation) which is a hobby of mine.

I'd like to see a SARS one still, Coronavirus would look good.
I've no idea what the controversial excuse is all about, a microbe is a microbe.
its no more controversial than Ebola or West Nile etc.

SARS is indeed a good one! And you're right Variola, I'm confused about all this arguing and stuff, I'm not sure what the big deal is all about...

And Lactobacillus is another good one!... Btw, what does crème fraîche taste like? Is it like a whipped cream? I'm curious...

I heard Cholera was a cute looking one! ^^

You mean b/c of a biological weapon (anthrax) being sent in the president's mailbox, on a letter, threatening the residents of the US?

I know what happened almost 8 years ago, but the thing that I don't get is why making a plush doll looking like one of the many deadly bacteria on earth, so contreversial? Is it because people would take offense? Sure it was awfully scary, but that's in the past now...
