In the Philippines, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front is indeed a fearsome countenance. A group of Muslim separatists that split from the erstwhile revolutionary Moro National Liberation Front, the MILF is often considered a terrorist group by international observers, allegedly with ties to the likes of the Jemaah Islamiyah and the Al Qaeda. Despite ongoing peace talks, there is no question that the MILF remains a force to be reckoned with and one that must be dealt with very carefully at all times.
And then American Pie came along. And the MILF never meant the same thing in this world after that.
So imagine my amusement when I saw this headline...
You can "declog my river" anytime, baby!
.:Bubba Tea Licious: Really?!?:.
If there are three things you can count on, it's death, taxes, and sniggering over a name like "Bubba Tea Licious" everytime it's said aloud, especially in the Philippines, of all places.
Ang sarap mag-Bubba Tea!!!
Hey! We're gonna franchise milk tea!
So what are our choices?
Well, there's the party teahouse place, Tea Gang...
No, that sounds too dry.
How about a tea delivery place like Tea Call?
That seems a bit too self-serving.
Well, maybe Proh's Tea?
No, that's too easy.
How about the one from the couple? Tea Gus-Anne?
Now, that's too hard.
Well, the last one we have is Bubba Tea Licious, so I dunno...
That sounds explosive! Let's take that franchise!
And thus, Bubba Tea Licious was born! Awesome tea, tea-spurting name!
