That’s… not a euphemism. The kids are smuggling pepper and salt into the schools, and selling it*.
Geez, guys, keep it down. What’s gonna happen if some other administrator – one with more slavish devotion to the ill-thought-out nutrition guidelines peddled by the Obama administration than good sense – sees this, and starts cracking down on the pepper suppliers?

Payne, the president of Blackford County School Board of Trustees in Hartford City, Indiana.
