Storyline

A wave of chickenpox is spreading through the town, and when Kenny comes down with the disease, the parents decide to infect all the boys so that they'll be immune from it later in life. When the kids find out how they're being used, they decide to get revenge by finding something to infect their parents with. Meanwhile, Kyle's and Kenny's fathers' reminiscences about their childhood friendship turn to resentment over how far their paths diverged. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Chickenpox is a fairly funny and good South Park episode.It starts with Stan's sister getting chickenpox.Stan's mother finds out that its dangerous to get chickenpox when you are older, so she has a meeting with all the moms so the boys could stay at Kenny's house and get chickenpox.The boys get it and start itching...except for Kyle.Kyle's mom tries to get him to get chickenpox but he simply cannot.Meanwhile, we find out that Kyle and Kenny's fathers were best friends back as teenagers.But they are not because Kyle's dad got rich while Kenny was still poor.They both go on a fishing trip and get into a fight.The boys eventually find out their parents got them chickenpox and they pay a hooker to give their parents herpies as revenge.Chickenpox is a pretty funny and good South Park episode.
