Wild Caught Boba

show images!

Happy Birthday Eve to my nephew!
We were at a Vietnamese restaurant with some friends and I thought this one up. No, we did not ask this. Yes, you totally should dress up all fancy and go to your local boba kiosk at the mall and ask. Please let me know how it goes. Also, it took me a while (possibly years) to know what bubble tea is and then also to realize that it's shortened to 'boba' by the cool adults. I have had it once and the tapioca pearls grossed me out - I did not like the texture. But I know many people like it, so you do you.

The joke is that bubble tea (boba) has tapioca pearls, which are little jelly blobs of pudding. The customer thinks that tapioca pearls come from oysters like normal pearls, when in fact they are just called pearls for their shape.

Good Sir: Are your pearls wild-caught?
Server: My dude, we sell boba.
