Why Nero Was Infamous: A Student’s Perspective

This is the first really funny statement on a student assignment this semester. It occurs in close proximity with what I assume is an unintentional pun. Enjoy!

Caesar Nero was infamously known for a few actions: idly watching Rome ablaze in the great fire of 64, blaming the Christians for the fire and destruction, and committing suicide and coming back from the dead.  These actions made him one of the most hated men especially by Christians, whom were publicly being killed and having it endorsed by Nero himself.  Christians were used as his scapegoat after the great fire of 64 to take the heat off of him for possibly starting the fire for his own personal benefits.
