You may have heard of Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken. If it were a mom-and-pop outfit with only one location, this blog entry would not be interesting. Fortunately it's a chain; so there are many outlets for Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken. In other words, there are plenty of Gus'ses--that's right, three syllables, no less--oops, no fewer! At least it's not Russ's. Considering all the Russ'ses would remind me of the horror movie, Sssssss, a snake-filled production starring Strother ("Men, what we have here is failure to communicate.") Martin. But I digress. It turns out there's a bit more--and less--to Gus's. I checked a phone directory for the correct full name of the company. There are several locations in our area. But gus--I mean--guess what? One was listed as Gus . . . and another as Guss's . . .. That latter one I phoned to be sure it was the same outfit. Yep, it is. Either the employee or the phone folks must have misspelled Gus's. I didn't bother to call the one listed as Gus . . ., since I figured a similar kind of snafu existed. Anyway, if they can't get Gus's right, I doubt they're curious about all the Gus'ses, right?
By the way, many spell my nickname Les as "Less." In fact, I use that idea in another blog, lesshumor.blogspot.com.
