“How do you inspect Greek food?"/"With a gyroscope.”

"Gyro” (a Greek food) and “gyroscope” a measuring device) are not the same thing and are usually not pronounced the same, but there are jokes. “New iPhone 4 adds a gyroscope. Will that help me find Greek food? I love Greek food” was posted on Twitter by CR Cars on June 7, 2010. “I thought a gyroscope helped you find Greek food” was posted on Twitter by steve mieczkowski on November 9, 2014.

Wikipedia: Gyro (food)
A gyro or gyro (/ˈdʒaɪroʊ, ˈʒɪər-, ˈjɪər-, ˈɡɪər-/; Greek: γύρος, romanized: gyros, lit. ‘turn’, pronounced [ˈʝiros]) is a Greek dish made from meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. Like shawarma and tacos al pastor, it is derived from the lamb-based doner kebab.

Wikipedia: Gyroscope
A gyroscope (from Ancient Greek γῦρος gûros, “circle” and σκοπέω skopéō, “to look") is a device used for measuring or maintaining orientation and angular velocity. It is a spinning wheel or disc in which the axis of rotation (spin axis) is free to assume any orientation by itself.

What if a gyroscope was an instrument that allowed you to identify shitty Greek food from long distances.

This phone is supposed to have a gyroscope but I don’t think it’s shown me a single Greek food place.
