Praise the Lord Jesus Boba

Since I am nothing if not hopelessly predictable, I went today for my usual Tuesday boba-or-shake-or-ice-cream-or-other-sugary-comestible-that-will-eventually-kill-me. The locale of choice? Boba Loca here in Westwood. (There are only about 276 places to get boba in Westwood, and I still have about three or four to check off the list.)

Anyway, written at the bottom of the boba cup was: "Acts 16:3 - Accept the Lord Jesus and you will be saved -- you and your household." (Something to that effect, anyway.) This is interesting for two reasons.

1. Right below the bible quote it said "This drink contains small tapioca balls which may be a choking hazard. Drink carefully." (But in case you don't drink carefully, you'd better accept the Lord Jesus right-the-hell-now, because you don't want your tapioca-filled soul to suffer eternal torment.)

2. According to any number of online Bibles, that quote wasn't remotely accurate. A quick Google search has revealed that the real Acts 16:3 says: "Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek." I guess that didn't have quite the effect the Boba Loca folks were shooting for.
