Tardigrades are microscopic creatures that can live in boiling water, solid ice, and the intense radiation of space. They can survive a decade in a desert without a drop of water to drink, or in the deepest trenches of the sea. When faced with extreme conditions, tardigrades can dry out completely, replacing almost of the water in their bodies with a sugar called trehalose. As a result, they’re able to survive environments that would otherwise kill them.

Which is why we must kill them all.

Tonight on the FINAL BROADCAST of NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND, Karen Carpenter, Bob-Marc, and Sherilyn Connelly will lay out their plans to finally rid the universe of these dangerous predators. Remember, tardigrades have a lot of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. So you want a 1.5MM-long creature that exists in sediments and seas, unnoticed by potential predators, teaching YOUR children or marrying YOUR daughter?

NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND: Getting the water bears before they get us.
