The meatball plant is designed to survive in any climate, acidic, volcanic, freezing, etc.
“There was a minor contamination breach,” Wood says, “and we haven’t fully understood the genetic stability or the fungus itself, but it should all blow over in a couple weeks.”
As he says this, one of his students crawls into the lab and makes a horrific gurgling noise before wheezing out a bloody lung-shaped meatball.
“Holy fucking…” Wood trails off, gaping at the damp meat on the floor as it wriggles around randomly, searching for a new host body.
The student lifts his head off the pile of blood that is spewing out of every orfice of his body, r u n , p l e a s e
