Looking for Ideas - Celebrating 10 years of Creepy Dreadful Wonderful Parasites

I can't believe that my first post was almost 10 years ago now - on March 25th, 2007. I feel like I have to do something special for my 10-year anniversary on 3/25/2017.

So I'm looking for ideas. Maybe a contest with prizes? I have lots of Creepy Dreadful Wonderful Parasites 'swag' to give away, including calendars, magnets, greeting cards and iPhone cases :)

Please email me with ideas.

How about a Giardia kite?

How about a parasitology joke contest?

I love it!

Another great idea. Perhaps I will request people to send in their parasite jokes, poems, or photographs of parasite related artwork that they did. I could then put the names of everyone who entered into a hat and pick the top three or so., This is shaping up to be a great idea :-)

Alternatively, I could have the clinical microbiology fellows vote for different categories: most creative, most beautiful, most disgusting…

Years ago, to supplement my meager tech's salary I worked at a machine shop. The blue collar workers there had a joke that is related to one of our findings in the lab:
"What is worse than a lobster on the piano?"
Well, I guess everyone knows the ectoparasite answer.
