Avocado farms [78/100]

In high school, I took an AP Economics course. There were a few seniors in my class, and by the time second semester rolled around, they were really checking out. For awhile, we tried to get the teacher to say a certain word — the more random, the better.

One day, I remember the word being guacamole. We asked the teacher all sorts of questions like “So how would you say this concept of supply and demand impacts, oh I don’t know, avocado farms?”

She was a good sport about it, though I don’t think she said “guacamole” during that class. She probably knew something was up, but I think if you’re a high school teacher, you just expect your students are always up to some shenanigans.
