Hawaii has decided to expand its list of official state symbols by adopting.... a germ.
Last week, the House of Representatives passed a bill that will recognize a bacterium called Nesiotobacter exalbescens as Hawaii’s official microbe.
In a move that will likely have the other 49 states clamoring for their own microbes, Hawaii will become the first state in the union to officially adopt a germ.
The Hawaiian Goose is rumored to be slightly miffed by this week's legal developments.
But as everyone knows... the surly bird gets the germ.
