In this Nov. 24, 2010 photo, germs, represented as stuffed toys created by Drew Oliver, are shown in his Stamford, Conn. offices. The onetime Harvard Lampoon editor turned a sense of humor into a growing business of stuffed toy germs. Once found mostly in pediatricians' offices and the labs of off-kilter university professors, his cuddly stuffed germs has spawned a Facebook fan club and subculture of eager collectors.
