Ancient Family Tradition

Ah, the ancient Fighter Cooking art Milkshake. Milkshake attack is possibly the best way to respond to shitty news. I just hope it’s not green tea flavored.

If you’re in the DC area and are looking for a damn tasty milkshake, Good Stuff Eatery on Capital Hill makes many fine, hand spun milk shakes. My absolutely favorite is the toasted marshmallow. They put two big ass toasted marshmallows in there. And they top their shakes with this really thick whip cream that will make you mess your pants.

I cannot, in good conscience, declare that it is the best milkshake the city has to offer because I have not tastes all the shakes of the city. The Shake Shack has recently taken up residence in Dupont Circle. I’ve eaten burgers there, but I have yet to try their milk shakes which is pretty stupid on my part since that’s what they’re known for. It might be fun to take a weekend when the weather is nicer and just go around town comparing milkshakes. We’d probably have to come up with some kind of criteria on which to judge them, but I can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend.

    That does sound like the best possible response.

    What are you talking about? Green tea flavored milkshakes are the best. Green tea flavored soymilk is the best. Green tea everything is probably the best (opera cake, gum).

    Also I love, love, love that third panel! Will you release a print of it, or a postcard, or a poster? Or an avatar?

    Am I a bad Asian for liking green tea flavored things? (I’ve never had a green tea milkshake – is the combination of green and dairy that is offputting?)

    I really like, how bodie is kinda hiding behind the couch, in the last panel.
    Also, epic Julie is epic… and suddenly cute in panel four. ^^

    I agree, the third panel is epic, almost looks like war propaganda.

    I have to admit the Cheeburger, Cheeburger milkshakes are pretty good. They even give you the metal, frosty milkshake container with the extra cup or so of milkshake to go with your big heapin’ glass; which is straight up classic drugstore style milkshake action.

    PS I saw a pic of you and the clan at a Jelly Belly factory. Get a family  portrait done at a studio, make your mom happier.

    A little out of the DC area proper but Chick and Ruth’s in Annapolis makes awesome milkshakes, not to mention being a great all around deli.

    The background in panel 3 is dope.

    It’s just occurred to me that they could probably get a court order nullifying the severance contract by proving that they handed in their resignation before receiving their notice of termination.
