Suddenly, as if by magic, he found the root of the problem.

The prof is talking about cartels in early 20th-century Germany.

Prof: (to class) Does anyone know what a cartel is?
Class: (silence)
Prof: Drug cartel - does anyone know what a drug cartel is?
Class: (silence)
Prof: Does anyone know what drugs are?

-- MIT 372, overheard by Dan
