+1 to that.

If you don't like the name don't eat at the establishment. There are more egregious things you could be worrying about than the name of a burger establishment.

Meh. It's not that funny (and I'm certainly not one to refrain from cursing). It doesn't make any sense in the context of a burger joint; a furniture store called "Sofa King" would be amusing.

I'm with the bird. It's not that funny, but I have no issues with the name.

I'm pretty childish, with sophomoric humor and I've been known to pepper my speech with plenty of curse words. I wouldn't care either if my kids "tried to sound out the name", as if your small children think "so ****ing" instead of Sofa King, that sounds like a parenting issue. It's just not cute or funny, in my opinion. I don't care about it either way, really.

I agree it's not that funny but it's also not at all offensive. A furniture store would be good. Our sleepers are sofa king comfortable you'll wonder why you even have a traditional bed.

I thought by giving a such a stupid, simplistic answer people would know I was kidding.
