The unnamed customer was shopping in Bettabuy and quizzed Maureen Naylor as to the country of origin of some tapioca. Maureen didn't know, and asked her if she was boycotting somewhere but the customer replied that she was merely curious. Maureen called over the store manager Curly Watts and the customer asked him if he knew the origin of the tapioca. Misunderstanding the question, Curly replied that it came from the cassava root.
