Bestiary :: Goldbugs
'Heart of gold' by Masao Hata >>
Damn damn damn that perspicacious Mr W. I am deeply afraid that he has uncovered my Plan B for financing the Museum. Once the news gets out I’ll be done for – there’ll be a rush on the dust market, global supplies will dry up, there may even be attempts to nationalise MY collection. Dust will be history.
Why can’t those appalling attention-seeking scientists learn to shut up? Damn those Australians! The apple really doesn't fall far from the tree, does it? And what is even more galling is that they’ve re-named MY microbe... “ralstonia metallidurans” ….??? I mean WTF? And who was it that let them in on its clever little gold-metabolising trick? But if they think they're going to pick up a Nobel prize on the back of MY hard work, they've got another think coming.
