DDT

One of my students was in such a hurry to get lunch that a student in his way was nearly body-slammed.  “Hey!” the physically fine but emotionally upset slamee asserted himself, “DDT!”

DDT?

He must have felt the question, because he explained: “What if DDT stood for ‘Don’t do that!’?  Cause DDT is completely illegal.  Peregrine Falcons were totally wiped out of the Eastern United States by DDT and egg hunters.”

I think this student will do well as part of Generation-Text; he’s already inventing acronyms.
