Meaning of quaid

quaid means: In the movies 'Quaid' was the name given to the leader of a rebel army of mutants in the sci-fi movie 'Total Recall'. He was the mutated baby that lived as a slimey giant growth on another mans body and not dissimilar to siamese twins. However, in the harsh, cruel reality of Lewes Priory School 'Quaid' was also the name given to the large, boil-like growth on the side of Ben Pattersons neck. Such was the cruelty of kids that whole conversations could be had with 'Quaid' without even having to acknowledge the poor boy upon which it grew. A typical example would have been to approach Ben Patterson and say loudly "Hi Quaid. How's going?... Oh sorry Ben,I didn't see you standing there". Another example would be to completely ignore poor Ben Patterson as you passed him in a corridor while saying "Hi Quaid". His horror eventually came to an abrupt end when 'Quaid' was finally surgicaly removed. Although rumour has it that he actually burst in the shower.
