We have a lot of theories drifting around about the origin of the walker plague. Virus seems the most popular choice. Bacteria? We even have a fungus fan. Jenner said it was none of these things. Toxins, radiation, Wrath of God? I don't think the Wrath of God is contagious, but toxins and radiated materials are dangerous to touch.
What I'm getting at is why would Daryl wear a necklace of walker ears. OK, he was having the mother of all bad days, but he still has the necklace. So why would an intelligent, if admittedly unschooled, man like Daryl do such a foolish thing? For that matter why would the writers expect us to believe he would?
