I'm still laughing out loud. This is not altered or faked.

Most don't pronounce "pho" correctly, but that's critical in this case.

It can go either way, but correct pronunciation (at least, as correct as my understanding) makes it the most funny.

It's culinary assimilation. Pho and Halal fast food places outnumber McDonald's, Tim Hortons, Wendy's, Subway and Burger King locations combined in my city by a factor of 10.

You can't walk more than 6 blocks in any direction in the core of Ottawa without encountering a Shawarma shop. We have more Halal places per capita than any place on earth outside the Arab world.

I just thought the proper pronunciation sounds just like a four letter word.

Not according to the Asian people I know. It was a big discussion with a Cambodian friend of mine.

You can Google it... It's not "foe"

Wikipedia has a pronunciation feature that will allow you to hear it.

Heh... So was I. That was how the discussion originally started. Several of us in the room (at the time) were asking him about it and pronouncing it "foe" and he kept correcting us. Since he actually grew up in Cambodia (his parents escaped the killing fields... Literally escaped while it was happening and returned later), I figured he probably knew what he was talking about.
