Soggy Bottom Computers

It's hard to imagine why someone would name a computer sales and service operation with the sobriquet, "Soggy Bottom". But, to each his own.

Don't know but the first thing that comes to mind are the Soggy Bottom Boys from the movie 'O Brother Where Art Thou'

I'm sure there is a story there!

Ash said...

Hilarious! Good find!

Kate said...

It doesn't conjure up positive images, does it? Great find!

RedPat said...

It sure doesn't fill me with confidence!

Halcyon said...

Not exactly what comes to mind for a computer repair shop either. It does not exactly inspire confidence!

Well at least you are laughing while you say hmmmmm?

Randy said...

Sounds more like a Country Western band!

About your comments on my blog today, I think the mosquito is also the largest bird in North Dakota. I visited my sister there one time in the summer and they almost carried me away! Also you mentioned the old theaters in Chicago and I wanted to tell you that I talked my daughter into going to a show (Donny and Marie Live Christmas in Chicago) at the Oriental Theatre and that place was gorgeous inside. The show was pretty good too, but my daughter abandoned me at intermission. She was rolling her eyes at me the whole time :)

It might be a computer freak who lost touch with reality... :)
God bless you!

Hello! Good find!

Jarart said...

At least they don't have to worry about someone else trying to use the same name. I could use them right about now.

JM said...

LOL! Well spotted.

Sharon said...

It does conjure up pictures of things that would not be good for a computer.

T. Becque said...

Yeah, it's not a good image that comes to mind with this! :)

The is a nursery in Stanwood called Soggy Bottom Farm of course it rains here a lot too.
Do you know why the ocean roars? You would too if you had sand in your bottom. I chuckle!

Bibi said...

Ha, good one. They'd call it a funny name probably for the same reason the company did in this post of mine.

bfarr said...

Soggy bottoms, of any type, are never good. Great catch.

SRQ said...

Wayne was right it was the movie and the fact that I purchased a farm with a mostly dry up lake i.e. Soggy Bottom Farm. From there Soggy Bottom Computers. The name is eye catching and people remember it and it gets a laughs. See lols above.
Thank for the ad.
Where was the picture taken??

So the computer genius is a two-year-old in diapers?
