I wrote busses instead of buses because:
  1. Both plural forms are correct. 'Buses' is more popular, especially in the US, but since most of the examples in my post are from Europe I used the older, less American form.
  2. Today, June 6th, is Kissing Day here (one of three), as the media have been repeating over and over again. Hence, the 'buss'
  3. The word 'buses' could be read, according to English rules, to rhyme with 'fuses', but not 'fusses'. On the other hand, the pronounciation of 'busses' is more or less unequivocal (if the pronounciation of anything in English can be unequivocal).
