The shop next door is changing their name to "..and the horse you rode in on."

New restaurant name: Sosumi

I think Apple has a patent on sosumi.

I thought that was the Scottish style of martial arts referenced in "So I Married An Axe Murderer".

"The name "Fukyu" might be a Japanese word for a form of martial arts"


Good to see that Japan's 14-year-olds like to play the same stupid pranks as ours.

I think the place next door should change its name to "Sideways."

The restaurant name is the same sound I make when someone offers me sushi.

"We didn't think it would be inappropriate."
Could we, maybe, have some examples of stuff that WOULD be inappropriate?

*snork* @ (talk like a) Pirateboy!

The problem is more likely with the Quebec French language laws. They didn't have the French translation of the name (va te faire foutre) above and 50% larger.

There was a place named "Pho King" in Anchorage. Since "Pho" is pronounced "fuh" I'm sure someone thought it was hilarious. I know I did. So I guess there is nothing new under the sun. They did change the name. Probably not nearly the business now.

We have a place here that was named by its owner, not a native speaker of English, "No Thai." People wondered what kind of problem he had with Thai food, and wondered even more when it turned out that it was actually a Thai restaurant. The phrase, translated from Thai, apparently means something quite else.

I've always wanted to open a place next door called "And no damn kimchi, either!"

And to add the obligatory comment on the story, clearly the thing for these people to do is move to Phuket. Or Fukang.

We have a Chinese place called Mai Dong. Everytime Mrs. Layzee says she doesn't know what she wants for dinner I helpfully suggest, "Take out. Mai Dong." I usually get slapped.
