Ongoing History Daily: Jack White’s guacamole problem

Back in 2015, Jack White played a gig at the University of Oklahoma in the city of Norman. During the show, he let it be known that he wasn’t happy that the campus paper published portions of his performance contract.  The published information included how much he was being paid ($80,000) and, more importantly, the secret ingredients of Jack’s personal guacamole recipe.

At first, it was reported that Jack was so mad that he blacklisted the university from all future tours. But after a while, things calmed down and things seem to be fine now. The good news is that we now know Jack’s personal guacamole recipe—and those who have tried it say it’s really, really good.
