No Pho King Way!

From Steve Carter on Facebook today, a pointer to Phở King Way, a Vietnamese restaurant in Gateway Shopping Center, Mission Viejo CA (in Orange County):

The restaurant; its name is a pun on fucking way, as in no fucking way!

Extracted and abbreviated entry from GDoS:

excl. no way!: (orig. US) in no way whatsoever! absolutely not! [1st cite 1970]

The exclamation is then expanded with the emphatic modifier fucking (They’re fucking crazy, etc.): no fucking way!

Previously on this fucking blog:

— in my 4/5/11 posting “Go pho it”, puns on the name of the Vietnamese soup, including the restaurant names What the Pho (Bothell WA) and Pho King (San Dego CA and Oakland CA)

— in my 3/7/12 posting “pho x 4”, more on restaurant names, including What the Pho and Pho King
