Selective seeing

By Debra Dobbins


 

The words that crop up in the funnies are pretty amazing at times. OK, yeah, I had to look “spirillum” up.

"Spirillum" is a biologic term that describes “any of a genus (Spirillum) having the form of a spiral thread and characterized by flagella,” according to Webster’s. Webster’s adds that the term is also applied to “any of various similar microorganisms.”

It’s amusing that Jeremy could spot a spirillum but not the mustard. It reminds me to never overlook the obvious.

If the meaning of a particular word is meant exactly for what it has been placed, sentence makes huge sense otherwise it is treated as satire. In case of times funnies, a single funny pic worths a thousand words.<a href=“http://www.glassesmarket.com/prescription_glasses_online?___store=default”>buying prescription glasses online
