For a laugh, let's just imagine the ways the line, "he did appreciate the plague" could be misconstrued. I love this forum.
DS told me his science teacher has a "stuffed herpes" toy and will occasionally say OKAY, PASS THE HERPES. He thinks this is hilarious but it did also cause him to ask a bunch of somewhat uncomfortable questions. smirk

I had no idea what he was talking about, until this post.
