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!
