Rookie!

IWC with nylon strap is sort of like Krieghoff with the plastic trigger guard. The cheap shit plastic trigger guard is a sign that the gun is high-dollar, not the entry-level model.

Boba is a smoothie drink with black marbles of tapioca in it. The straw is like 1/2" in diameter to let the tapioca marbles bloob bloob bloob up the straw and into your mouth. It's a totally degenerate drink. It's something Asian Trash drink.

I love it. That and Orange Bang.

And speaking of taste and appreciation, when is this trip to K town? May I tag along?

Is Boca the same as bubble tea? There are bubble tea places all over seattle and vancouver. I don't have the nerve to walk up and ask what bubble tea is.

Oh man. Fedco. That place was the shit when I was a kid. The Lee Clan used to make a weekly run to Fedco. We should shop in the department store area first, then the market, and then the food counter. I used to love that food counter.

Remember that pepperoni pizza where they counted off the pepperoni slices and arranged them in a linear arrangement with the edges overlapping, so that each slice of pizza you bought had the same number of pepperoni's on them? That's how you know Fedco was a class joint: every piece had the same number of pepperoni pieces. And they would serve you the slices on that wax paper that turned orange from the pepperoni grease. My mother would get pissed when I tried to lick the wax paper.

I still remember Fedco's cornish game hen too. Each half-chicken had the pineapple and cherry on it. That was true Uptown. Before that I had never had chicken with the trimmings. Served on wax paper of course.

It was also from Fedco that I had my first bagel. As a kid, I didn't like bagels and preferred donuts. What a dumb ass.

I was bummed when Fedco went under. My old firm was debtor's counsel in that case too. We basically sold everything to Target.

John,
Maybe we've found the inspiration for your October trail cuisine?
It could be quite the debut...

Don't assume you are safe from this K-town trip. You KNOW non of our lifted trucks will fit in K-Town Plaza mall parking structure.

You are the designated driver in your G4 MKIII. Besides, you have to order that Jublee band, also. LOL

time to set the date, gentlemen. (pun intended)

I've got to shop for some swine tissue and wax paper.

I just remembered another thing about Fedco that I used to dig: the membership cards. Remember those white membership cards you had to flash when you walked in? When I was a kid, that's how I knew Fedco was a legit place.

Gemco had the membership card too, but it was paper. It wasn't plastic. That's how I knew Gemco was a wannabe Fedco.

Even lower than Gemco on the pecking order was Jewelcor. Remember that jizz place?

It's the same. "Charlie" (as John and Ho always say) can't pronounce "bubble". It comes out sounding like "boba", hence the name.


I love me some boba... good stuff.

I am sorry but boba does not come from bubble. You roundeyes crack me up.

Boba comes from Buo Ba.

Here is definition from Wikipedia,

"Another name for the tapioca found at the bottom of bubble tea or boba milk tea. Pronounced, Buo Ba (Mandarin). The literal meaning is a slang for "big breast / nipple" as the tapioca balls resemble a mother's nipple."

I guess if you really wanted to make an relation to an English word, it would be more like:

"Charlie" (as John and Ho always say) can't pronounce "boobies". It comes out sounding like "boba", hence the name.
