Aquaman and Platelet

My wife and I were traveling once and chanced upon this episode of some kind of superhero cartoon. Since we’re both immunologists, we were the perfect demographic for this humor.

My Microbiology class is just beginning a unit on immunology, so it seems as appropriate time to share this video clip. I hope you enjoy it – I wish I could find the whole episode, although this is probably the best clip.

 

Just to clarify, here’s what platelets looks like, small cell fragments whose function is to initiate clotting and start the healing process following vascular tissue damage.
