It is International Bat Appreciation Day today and I was going to do a post in celebration of my surviving bat delivered rabies with hardly any medical intervention at all except those 37 shots of bat globulin and gamma globulin in my thumb all around the thumbnail. (I kept asking for alfa globulin but they pretended I was raving mad and kept needling me about it.) So there I was today, seeking bat inspiration on you tube and my fingers did the walking, even the hyper-ventilated left thumb. (No it wasn't enough that the bat sank its fangs in there but I believe I mentioned the needles....) And there was a typo in my tube of u search vector and it delivered unto me,

which introduced me to Manny (the good one, not the one in Fawlty Towers) and Blacks Books which we enjoyed enormously several years ago. I had never heard of Bill Bailey before seeing this show. The link should take you to youtube where the first season's six episodes are on file for your enjoyment.

Having had rabies, do you have an acquired immunity?

That's a darned good question but I don't think so. There is a vaccine for it but one still requires additional shots if bitten again.

I shall have to investigate further.
