Last night on the Headlines segment of Jay Leno’s show, he showed a takeaway menu from a Vietnamese restaurant called, wait for it …. “Mo’ Pho”. Now “pho” is a type of Vietnamese noodle but I don’t know what “mo” means. It could be a name. In any case it’s an unfortunate combination.
So I was there laughing my head off when my mom asked me what’s so funny.
Me: Look at that! Mo’ Pho!
Mom: Yeah? So?
Me: Mo’ Pho! Mofo! Get it?!
Mom: No. What is it?
Me: It’s a Vietnamese restaurant and they are called “Mo’ Pho” lah! Hahaha!
Mom: I still don’t get it.
Me: Hai-yah. You really want me to say it?
Me: You sure?!
Me: Mofo is short for “motherfucker”.
There. I think I’ve crossed the last decent boundary with my mom. If there ever was one! Hahah!
