There's a Lot of That Going Around

Some of the papers that I am grading are quite entertaining, often for the right reasons.  But there are moments: the Black Death caused an outburst of "anti-semantic fervor."  As long as it does not cause anti-syntactic fervor, too.

Well, I guess that's better than anti-Symantec fervor.

Now the question is, do you take points away for using the wrong word, or award points for unintentional humor.
