This week’s gag was going to be something entirely different but as I was scrolling through my notes of punchline gags, I figured I’d better draw this one before it becomes irrelevant. When I learned there was going to be a shortage of tapioca pearls due to the Suez Canal blockage, I decided to pick some up at my local Chinese supermarket. It was slim pickings but I got a couple of small and overpriced boxes of tapioca pearls to tide us down for a couple of months. I don’t understand why pearls are travelling that route since they’re coming from Taiwan. Anyway, I digress. Luckily, I’ve never had to slurp boba off the floors but the imagery of it was funny to me. I have however, slurped spilled boba off of a table before… lol. Hope y’all enjoy.
