Let's Not Say "'Buch"

"Since 2007, their kombucha blends like Straight Up, Red Ginger and Lemon Drop have been sold in bottles and on tap at New York's food markets and grocery stores. As business began to boom, Eric and Jessica found themselves with a lot of extra 'buch on their shelves, so they started cooking with it."

I had not previously considered that "'buch" would be used as a casual contraction for "kombucha", but now I find that it is, I am unsurprised that it irritates me as much as it does. LET'S 'BUCH IT UP DUDE.

Cf. "vape" and its ilk.

@Gef the Talking Mongoose Seriously. Sometimes people just want a femme drink, anyway.

Well, cooking it will kill the germs, I guess.

We'll miss you too, Balk.

Every time I read the hidden text, I am reminded of what kind of man I want to marry.

As someone who sometime uses ipads to peruse the awl, where the only way to obtain the alt-text is to use the voice function, hearing Balk's words in a robotic female voice often adds a whole other level of amusement.

I'm going to start a rockabilly band named Alexander Balk and the Element Inspectors. Who's with me?
