    Need two sentences with a word ‘bacterium’

    Please, I need two REAL sentences with a word ‘bacterium’ – not ‘bacteria’!

    Why do you need them, northpath?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Need two sentences with a word ‘bacterium’

    How about a bacterium limerick?

    There once was a lonely bacterium,
    Who received a big honorarium.
    He decided his life he should modify,
    so he sat down and started to multiply,
    until he filled up the whole damn aquarium!
    Wear short sleeves! Support your right to bare arms!

    OK then:

    There once was an ovoid bacterium
    Who followed the true magisterium.
    A religious fella,
    He used his flagella
    To whip himself into delirium.

    Sorry skrej, that isn't a limerick. Its third and fourth lines are too long.

    To repeat ems's question, northpath, why do you need them?

    Just as an example of using the singular form of ‘bacteria’ because there are no such examples in dictionaries.

    Re: Need two sentences with a word ‘bacterium’

    Thanks, it has never occurred to me that a bacterium can be a hero of a limerick!
    Let me share my own limerick – just for fun:

    There was an old man of New York
    Who punched his right buttock with a fork.
    When they asked, “Does is hurt?”
    He replied, “Yes, a lot”.
    That mysterious man of New York
