Well, how else am I to express the second person plural? Would you prefer "yous guys"? ;)

"Perfect pluplural"? is that supposed to be a joke? Like Pluperfect Plural tense or something?

Lol- I thought you left that comment, TNO. I wonder who it was... It was a clever pun at any rate!

Perhaps a touch too clever...
Kind of like the joke that Bob Sanborn made the other day...
"¿Fue Juan al supermercado?"
"Si', se fue (Safeway)."
Pretty bad.

A "bad" joke is one that is not tailored to the audience, not one that shows an exuberant amount of wit. It's a pseudo-insult to play down the wit of the one who launched the jest.
