School is back this week but not all news is good news for one parent.
Mother of a 12-year-old boy has discovered a colony of a super mould after her son failed to clean out his school bag last December.
“The contents of the rotten bag had somehow mutated into an advanced colony.” Sue Lacky, mother of 2 from Eaglehawk said “Not only does the mould have its own world, but I think I saw an Ikea and Bunnings. I’m pretty sure I saw tiny specimen cooking Bunnings snags.”
Mrs Lacky believes a sandwich was found inside the bag but was not certain. Also left in the bag was possibly a fruit formally known as an apple or peach. It was taken away by the CSIRO for testing. A vintage black banana or zucchini of some description was also uncovered underneath an unfinished assignment mixed in with some crushed Arnott’s biscuits.
A spokesperson for the CSIRO said “We’ve never seen anything like this, we believe we’ve uncovered a new species of fruit. It’s a hybrid apple, peach and kiwi fruit. The only identifiable characteristic of the ‘apeiwi’ is the wrinkly skin and fur.”
Her son Lachy said, “I thought I cleaned out my bag, jeez mum.”
The EPA has deemed the boy’s room a biohazard.
The bag has been handed to Bendigo Art Gallery for their new exhibit called ‘Old Bags of Bendigo.’
