I’m doing one of these a day until the end of April. To send it, copy the permalink or the image file link into an email, tweet, Facebook DM, etc. — or just download and make free with the image.

Dave Bonta (bio) crowd-sources his problems by following his gut, which he shares with 100 trillion of his closest microbial friends — a close-knit, symbiotic community comprising several thousand species of bacteria, fungi, and protozoa.

  1. Kia ora Dave,
    This one is my favourite of the series, really had me sitting here chuckling away. A good moment.


    1. Hi Robb – You’re in good company. My dad also said it gave him a chuckle. I’m glad that at least a few of these cards have a more general appeal beyond just poetry scenesters.


  2. I’ve enjoyed everyone, and posted many on the front page of my site. This one made me laugh out loud!

    Thanks for this–


    1. Hey, glad you’re enjoying them so much. It’s good to hear I haven’t just been amusing myself.
