Here is my entry for this competition:

“You didn’t clean up your work station before you went on vacation, Alexander. Your culture plate is overflowing with mould. Can you sort it out today please?”

“I was just looking at the mould on that plate, William. I’m sorry about the mess but did you notice what has happened. The staphylococcus colonies on the plate have become transparent. They are obviously breaking down and being destroyed by lysins.  This mould seems to be the preventing the growth of the bacteria.”

“Let me take a closer look. You’re right, this is astonishing. What a way to make this discovery.”
