A visual pun?

Coming back from a Christmas morning brunch with my family at Joe Shanghai's, I spotted this not so subtle ad on a Chinatown store window and had to snap it with my cameraphone.

The name "bubble tea" comes from "boba tea," as it was known in Taiwan where I first encountered it in 1982. "Boba" is Chinese slang for breasts, or, in a strange phonetical coincidence, boobs.
