Dot Com Pho – The Debt Ceiling Edition

Saturday is the weekly Dot Com Pho meetup. This is when a group of us get together to talk about the events of the week. Well, mostly we just yap about whatever comes to mind, but we chose to talk about the debt ceiling because it’s hot news and because I can rank for it on Google if I blog about it. So, debt ceiling! Debt ceiling! And one more debt ceiling to stuff that keyword! πŸ˜›

We had a nice gathering of eight people making it out to Pho Thanh Vi in the International District near downtown Seattle. We tried a wide variety of dishes, discussed a wide range of issues, and generally had a really good time. Anyone is welcome to join us. Follow me on Twitter to find the time and location of the next Dot Com Pho event.

For this edition of Dot Com Pho, we have the one eyed one horned flying purple people eater, Pho without the Pho, a dressed-up cupcake, and what we’ll do if our social security checks doesn’t come because the debt ceiling didn’t get raised. The answer is, we may not be able to have Pho next week!

Dot Com Pho Vancouver – Pay with Your Bum Edition

After taking a break, the Vancouver crew are back at Happy Pho. They talk about a wireless hard drive, bacon pho, Ed getting a job, and moving to a cashless society by paying with your bum. Wait, what?

    The food looks absolutely amazing, as always John! lol. by the way, I love the keyword stuffing, talk about transparency man!!

    1. Kevin Kimes says:

      While you’re at it, John, try to rank for One Eyed One Horned Flyin’ Purple People Eater. High Volume, High Quality Traffic right there.

      1. He is man, food stuff, keyword stuff, everything hand in hand. Love the way it was designed to say “One Eyed One Horned Flyin’ Purple People Eater”.

      2. Lets ask the man himself. Was that intentional John?

        1. Frank says:

          Wow my mouth is watering now! I’m going to go to Chinatown this afternoon.

          I think what John does by blogging about food and deducting the cost of quality restaurants from his profits is smart! It’s given me a few ideas, that’s for sure.

          1. Hey John and everybody,

            How about the debt ceiling thing? What are your thoughts on that, really?

            Pretty childish conduct of the decision makers. Downright disgusting. It seems that partisanship is so overwhelming that common sense has but evaporated.

            As for social security checks, those would be the last thing not to get paid I think.

    this is amazing food as always, saturdays are a lot of fun.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      Yeah, the food looks so amazing. Another awesome Dot Com Pho!

    2. Yes at John Chow we always see nice and mouth watering foods.

      Last post on sushi was simply awesome.

  3. PPC Ian says:

    Now, let’s watch the keyword “debt ceiling” on Google to see if John Chow dot Com starts ranking!

    1. so Ian let us know the progress …though I will also keep an eye on it.

      1. surely it will make some difference. He is just making the competition tougher.

      2. PPC Ian says:

        Keeping an eye on it but not seeing John Chow dot Com show up yet. I’m sure it will at some point!

    2. Erwin Miradi says:

      I’ll keep an eye on it.

      1. Yes Michael was looking for the vancouver video as well … Was about to visit your website to see the video … Thanks for adding here.

        1. Hey ZK,

          Since you are so keen on watching what goes on in Vancouver Pho you may enjoy watching yet another video from there taken on Saturday as well:

        For some reason, your only choices for where your RFID wallet will be embedded are your forehead or your ass.

        1. Michael Kwan says:

          There are ZERO other options. Really.

          1. Your point of better not using limbs is very valid. The forehead is most logical place and the other part mentioned may be a necessary option if somebody’s head has been badly damaged due to an accident, operation or sensitive skin or allergy.

          2. Ed Lau says:

            I think my nipple suggestion works best. You have two. One can be chequing and the other savings.

  6. JoMi says:

    The food looks so delicious, I’m now starving! I’m curious about the debt ceiling, what’s really all about it?!

  7. Mark Chauvin says:

    Vietnamese bakeshops make the best French bread. Take from someone that is in the home of poboys!

  8. fas says:
