It all started with a tweet from the Centers for Disease Control posing a question: "Ticks can be the size of a poppy seed. Can you spot all 5 ticks in this photo?" The attached images from last week showed a poppyseed muffin, that paragon of American breakfast pastries, with no fewer than five blood-sucking arachnids hidden on top. It's part of a CDC effort to warn Americans of tick-borne infections such as Lyme disease that the agency said are on the rise.
