Default Microbe Christmas Ornaments!

Hi there! Now, a few of us at this forum have been discussing the idea (brilliantly thought up buy moi) of Microbes christmas ornaments. They would basically be little pvc figurines with loops attached to the tops for all your tree hanging needs. There was a thought of them having a little santa hat on, too. So, pick wether you would like to see ornaments or not, and wether you would like them to have santa hats or not. I was thinking they could come singularly, in packs of the categories (e.g, health, maladies), or in a box of all the microbes. Pick one of these options, too! We thought a poll would be a good idea, so we could show the results in an e-mail to the company to show that there is interest in the idea! We'd like to have them available this coming christmas, so cast your votes now! You should have picked three choices in the end, by the way, unless you select "no", then you need only pick no! Voting is a huge help, and remember, if there is lots of interest to show when the e-mail is sent, we could have germ-infested trees for (hopefully) christmas 2006!

Please no Santa Hats. I'm Jewish and would use them for my Hanukah bush, and would rather have it more secular for that matter.

Yeah, I realized that after I made the poll. It would not be fair to poeple from other religions if we used a christian Icon, also they look more like microbes without hats! Thanks for voting!

I would not mind too much if they had santa hats, though I would prefer if it were an option, I would possibly get both sets but would probably like the ones without the hats better, especially since then they could be used for other things besides Christmas ornaments then... I've never heard of a Hanukah bush, cool!

May all your cultures grow right and may all your inoculated potatoes have blight

I mean, the first part did, but the second part was weird. It made sense, it was just weird...

Potato blight, it is a fungal infection of potatoes, caused massive problems in Ireland where potatoes are a staple diet. I added the innoculated because I would not wish for someone that does not want it to have it considering how many people starved because of it. Only went with blight because it rhymed with right.
