Would you like a straw with your beverage? Is it for flavor or because it seems more sanitary, or because you're just used to it?

If a slogan is not interruptive, it's likely not to grab the attention of the intended audience. An ad that people relate to is also more useful than one full of abstract concepts.

It’s gotten quite popular in the last few years to select dirty names for start-up businesses. There’s Dirty Dick’s Crab House, Fat Bastard Burrito, but none tops the new burger joint in Chattanooga.

Its name is Sofa - King - Juicy - Burger. If you say the name real fast, it only takes a couple times to figure out the intent of the owner. Despite, that is, the fact that he says there’s a large sofa in the joint.

And that doesn’t scratch the surface.
