|A comparison of Corynebacterium diphtheriae and real Chinese "letters".|
If you can read the Chinese then you are in for a treat.
What is funny about diphtheriae is that the scientists who studied it long ago looked at it under a microscope said that it looks like "Chinese letters". To me, this is funny on many levels, one of the more obvious being that there are no letters in Chinese. They use characters, where each character represents a word. In English, @#$% are examples of characters. Silly, uncultured westerners.
