SIMPLY PHO YOU yelp.com / Via yelp.com Good. 2. PHO-NOMENON yelp.com / Via yelp.com Would have gotten bonus points if it were "Pho-nomnomnom" but this will have to do. 3. PHO' EVER yelp.com Not bad... but there has to be a way to make this a little more cloying... 4. PHOever YUM yelp.com Nailed it. 5. 9021-PHO yelp.com For the record, this restaurant is located in Glendale, CA, which is actually ZIP code 91210 (sorry, I mean 9121-"Pho"). 6. ABSOLUTELY PHO-BULOUS yelp.com Because nothing says "traditional Vietnamese food" like a cult '90s Brit-com about drug abuse and alcoholism. 7. PHORAGE yelp.com / Via yelp.com You know, like "forage" -- meaning to find / scavenge food, like an animal does. 8. PHO-NOMENAL yelp.com / Via yelp.com But wait! What's that on the wall inside? It looks like... it looks like... YES! TWO "PHO" PUNS IN THE SAME RESTAURANT! yelp.com / Via yelp.com UnPHOgettable, indeed. 9. BUN ME! yelp.com Oh great, now the banh mi guys are getting into it. Stay out of this, banh mi guys! 10. PHO SHOW yelp.com That's better. 11. GOOD PHO YOU yelp.com Good for you. You came up with yet another "pho" pun. 12. PHO KING WAY yelp.com Their website would lead you to believe they are not, in fact, in on the joke... pkway.net But don't worry... yelp.com They get it. 13. SO PHO, SO GOOD yelp.com OWNER #1: We need a mediocre pun for our business. Help me brainstorm. Remember, it HAS to be mediocre!OWNER #2: Ok. How about "Pho-Tosynthesis"?OWNER #1: Too nerdy. "Pho-skin?"OWNER #2: Gross. "Pho-bidden Zone?"OWNER #1: "Friend or Pho?"OWNER #2: Not mediocre enough!OWNER #1: "Homo-PHO-bia"?OWNER #2: What? OWNER #3: Hey guys, how's the brainstorm coming?OWNER #1: So far, so good!ALL THREE OWNERS: Heeeeeeey..... 14. iPHO yelp.com / Via yelp.com Because every year there is a meaningless cosmetic redesign and people are forced to line up around the block to get in. 15. PHO KING DELICIOUS yelp.com / Via yelp.com See? If you've got a solid pho-king pun on your hands, then why not commit? Go pho-king big or go pho-king home. But the best / worst "pho" pun isn't in LA at all. It's up in Renton, Washington. You ready? 16. PHO SHIZZLE Abra Alani / Via yelp.com Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF giphy.com (Honorable mention: This one is not a pun, just an unfortunate choice of name.) yelp.com Apparently it's pronounced "me-yoon." Judging by the Yelp reviews, the name is bringing in a decent amount of business... and a dollar spent ironically is worth the same as one spent in earnest, so maybe the owners of My Dung know exactly what they're doing.
