If it's "om" in "ous", shouldn't the first part be ouoms?

Seriously, guys? A rebus just has to get you to say the sound of the word. It isn't meant to be letter-accurate.

"Om in us" has no other pronunciation but the correct one. Consider this rebus: brainteasers/44081/seating-chart.html (I can't post the whole URL because the comment software won't let me.

Didn't get it 'cuz I didn't try. Oh, NOW I get it! Thanks, comments! "Om" in "us!!!" (It's subtly scary because it is, especially late at night. Ooh, scary!)
