An 18 year old college student loses his appetite to eat all the ‘shit foods’ he can get hold of after he heard his Economics teacher expand ‘Economics.’ On the first day of classes, the teacher started out by writing ‘Economics’ on the virtual board in Microsoft Teams and started expanding it.The student was super enthusiastic and started taking notes. While making notes, he felt hungry and thought he will grab some left over ‘deep fried chicken nuggets’ from the fridge. He was about to eat the nuggets when the teacher went on…Dear Students, “Today I will expand ‘Economics.’ Since you are first year Economics students, this could be the most important class of your lives” (No hyperbole here!). He went on…“E for Engine, C for Cat, O for Onion, N for Not applicable,M for Male,I for ‘I am sexy and I know it’, C for Computer Science and S for Sadism.”

On hearing this the student had spit out what he was eating and stared at the screen. He remained ‘blank’ for the entire duration of the class. After the class was over, he thought to himself ‘Fuck, all this’ and went back to eating the nuggets. To his surprise the lecture kept playing in his mind when he wanted to eat the nuggets. He soon discovered that the lecture played over and over again whenever he wanted to eat ‘shit foods.’ He couldn’t eat these foods anymore without the replay!

Although the student was startled by this development, his parents were overjoyed when contacted by this reporter and said that,“The professor is fucking awesome. I don’t know what he did in his class, but my son stopped eating ‘shit foods.’ This is worth the price of entry into any university. With joy in my heart, I recommend this university to everyone.” On being told what the professor taught, the parents said, “It doesn’t matter, he saved us a lot of money. Its fucking awesome!”
