However, there's one clever high schooler in California who has everything under control...

Newbury Park High School history teacher Steve Johnson recently shared this request for a recommendation that is guaranteed to win over history teachers everywhere:

It says:"Your class must be a product of the Manhattan Project because it is the BOMB! And if you asked Thomas Paine, he would say it's only Common Sense that I ask you a question. Okay. I'll stop STALIN and get to the point...Will you help me TROTSKY my way into college and write me a recommendation letter?"
