What? This is a problem?

Oh how I wish gurufrisbee's school's Net Nanny let him access Page 132. I wonder what he'd say about this...

MORIARTY, N.M. -- Principal Wayne Marshall said a teacher at Moriarty High School made a misjudgment on an algebra test for his students.

A question on the test incorporated a fictional methamphetamine dealer.

The question read, "Smoky J. sells meth. Smoky's source says he has to sell a G's worth of meth by the end of the month. If Smoky sold 240 dollars the first week and 532 dollars the second week, how much money must Smoky make if he wants to avoid the beat down from his connection?"

Marshall said the teacher, Will Klundt, is a good teacher who tries different methods, but he made a misjudgment. Marshall declined to discuss if any disciplinary action will be taken.
Maybe it is a sign that I shouldn't be in the classroom any longer, but I thought that question was hillarious. Is there a problem with it?
