Spleen plush and erasers with scissors

Did you know spleens can multiply? If your spleen happens to get hurt, and parts of the spleen end up in other parts of your abdomen, the spleen cells can regenerate into mini-spleens if there are enough blood vessels around to feed them. About one in five people have these so-called "accessory spleens," and they are waaay better for your immune system than say, a necklace.

Want some accessory spleens for yourself? Be sure to check out I Heart Guts for Spleen Lapel Pins, Spleen Socks, Spleen Erasers and Spleen Plush for all of your gifting needs!

 

Which immune system part are you? 

Tonsil: reclusive and easily tamed with ice cream? 
Thymus: nurturing yet thinks life ends after childhood? 
Spleen: tough yet disposable? 
Or are you a Lymph Node: omnipresent and easily irritated?

No spleen? No worries! If they took your spleen, tell them you lost it in a shark attack. Waaaay more interesting than the tale of your splenectomy. Who needs a spleen, anyway? Though an important part of your immune system, your spleen is one of the organs you can live without. Snuggly spleen fleece blanket shown here is available in three different sizes, as well as a sherpa fabric version!

Isn’t a spleen shark attack way more exciting than that boring ol’ splenectomy you had? Tell a tall tale with our spleen vs. shark design, available as a tee, tote, mug, phone case and much more! Spleen stuff is available in our Threadless shop.
