    I think it might be the miss-hit of the week. Brains in path labs tend to go mouldy.

    Is that the ones being examined, or doing the examining.

    It seems it doesn’t take much to blow some people’s minds? perhaps the lab technician who prepared the samples didn’t wash their hands after going for a poo.

    Faecal coliforms are a key measure of microbiological safety in the food industry. Enforced hand swabbing shows that at least 25% of people wipe their bum and don’t wash their hands properly afterwards.

    I’m sure it’s more lax in research labs.
