“If A is for Apple and B is for Banana, then what is C for?"/"Plastic explosives.”

One way of teaching the alphabet is to say, “A is for Apple, B is for Banana, C is for Cookie...” A riddle is:

Q: If A is for Apple and B is for Banana, then what is C for?
A: Plastic explosives.

Wikipedia: C-4 (explosive)
C-4 or Composition C-4 is a common variety of the plastic explosive family known as Composition C. A similar British plastic explosive, based on RDX but with different plasticizer than Composition C-4, is known as PE-4 (Plastic Explosive No. 4). C-4 is composed of explosives, plastic binder, plasticizer to make it malleable, and usually a marker or odorizing taggant chemical.
