Thanks Debra. After I posted it,I wasn't sure if anyone would get it. I should have been more specific about the Black Death and identified the drawing of the plague doctor. Oh well, c'est la vie.

I also love black himour! I don't understand why these scientists are playing with fire in the first place. Spend your time and resources on discovering something useful. I hope once they perfect it, they try it out on themselves in a hermetically sealed building, which we can then encase in cncrete.

Now there's an idea, jane!

Looks like some scientists have too much time on their hands! How about working on something beneficial for everyone? You gotta love black humour; I especially like it when a little sarcasm is thrown in.
