Provocative Titles

There's nothing wrong with the name Burger King
(aside from the obvious ego thing).
But I'd be mighty skeptic
about shouting out in public,
"Let's go buy a couch from that place called Sofa King"

NOTE: Say "Sofa King" while closing your eyes... see if you don't notice something strange.

    HA! And, for the record, if the damn couch is comfortable from that store, I'll proudly advertise it. The commercials for it would be grand.

    The commercials WOULD be grand (until it becomes so cozy you forget your lines and fall asleep... he he he)... Always enjoy your creative comments, my friend!

    Ha ha, I thought this write to be quite funny my friend! I tried your suggestion and closed my eyes and saying Sofa King, and I saw a royal man in full purple robes with a large golden crown on his head while sitting on the couch...I thought it strange as well! Was I supposed to see something else? I really enjoyed reading this enlightening poem this morning! What a lovely expression you have given us here Timothy, Great Work!!

    Lol... well you can view it like that! My thoughts were a little on the immature side, however. Doesn't saying "Sofa King" sound like you are swearing?
