A FEW FUN THINGS!
Though the rhyming may be painful, I have composed a viral limerick for
class which I reproduce here in honor of the success of oral rehydration
therapy-- apologies for propagating bad poetry.
A Viral Limerick Composed by Cat
There once was a virus called Rota
Liked by babies not one iota
But help came you see--
In the form of ORT
Now they grow up to drive Toyotas.
Below is a cartoon, drawn by Arnt J. Raae, which illustrates the
nature of rotavirus as well as its characterisitc electron micrograph
appearance of a wheel.
