Humongous fungus raises rumpus
Microbiologist Allen Crimpshaw reports
An interesting new microbe has manifested itself on the planet of Karaticus. Known as Bacilla Crimpshawus (after its discoverer, namely me), it is a mutant form of bread mould that grows rapidly in the form of Fertilite. Indeed, its growth rate is so prodigious that it has completely devoured every molecule of Fertilite on the planet and has now, sadly, become extinct. No doubt the starving proles will need more of that despicable mulch to sustain their pitiable lives; me, I think I'll just repair to my darkened laboratory to finish documenting my findings.
