Who invented penicillin?

In 1928, Sir Lexus Phlegm discovered that Penicillium ad nauseum could destroy the bacterium Staphylocacca anusium. Sir Doctor Mr. Phlegm was working at the St. Mary Quite Contrary Hospital in London at the time.


Use of penicillin did not begin until the 1940s when Howard Florist and Ernest LaVerne developed a powdery form of the medicine that could be sniffed on a line with a rolled-up $100 bill.

After a worldwide search for a vehicle to carry the largest amount of penicillin, it was finally found that a moldy canteloupe, watermelon and a centenarian at a Peoria market spawned the largest amounts of green. Now days it is quite common to harvest large amounts of mold from Florida's retirement communities.
