Fighting For A Haircut

I'm a fairly recent convert to pho -- I only tried Vietnamese food for the first time last year. I dig it. Getting takeout today made my car smell nice, much-needed after I spilled coffee over every square inch earlier in the week.

There's 114,000 Vietnamese joints on Buford Highway, but so far I've only been to Pho #1. Partly because it's #1, and everyone likes a winner. And partly because Pho #1 makes me think of Fugazi's Song #1, and so anyone in the car with me (today, no one) gets treated to me singing that song with the word "Pho" replacing the word "song" throughout.

Does Pho #2 remind you of Song #2 by Blur? Just asking.

Actually, there is no Pho #2 here (that I know of). It seems to go straight from Pho #1 to Pho #96. Numbers 2-95 just couldn't cut the mustard.

Wow. That post literally made me laugh aloud. Thanks for that. :)

Even better? My word verification is phoribi.

"Phoribi" sounds like some variation on the dish, with extra ingredients thrown in -- perhaps delicious, perhaps dodgy. Next time I go up there I'll ask for Phoribi and see what happens.
