No Way!

No Way!

A Vietnamese restaurant recently opened up across the street from me.  They mainly serve "Pho" noodle dishes.  The atmosphere is par and the food is decent.  (But then again, it's difficult to screw up Pho.)  What's the point of bringing this up?  Well, the food isn't the funny part.  The name of the establishment is.  Here's a picture of it:

Yep, Pho King Way.  This is something we joked about many times as kids, but never thought it would ever come to fruition.  (I still chuckle sometimes when I drive by.)  Why would I laugh?  Either you already know, or you're about to find out.  It's all in the proper pronunciation.

Pho, even though it looks like it should be pronounced like "foe," is actually pronounced like the "fu" in "fudge."  Now, string together the whole name quickly.  "Pho King Way."  Get it?  I know it's childish, but what can I say?  It was a childhood joke.  Hee hee!

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  It was all too short for me!

ROFL! This is great- I thought places with hilarious names were reserved for like bizarre little towns. Hilarious!

All it needs is a "no" attached to the front! haha There's a restaurant here called "Phuket" which I thought was hilarious until I realizzed it's the name of Thailand's capital.

I giggled as soon as I say the picture... If my last name was King, I would totally name my child Pho, just so i could laugh every day... :) Great post today!

@ Jess I can't help but think that they did do this on purpose. But who knows?
