Why Cow On The Roof?
The name was inspired by The Coen brothers’ 2000 film
Oh Brother, where art thou?
Loosely based on Homer’s Odyssey, the film is set in 1937 rural Mississippi during the Great Depression. Three escaped convicts (played by George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson) get a lift from a blind man driving a handcar on a railway. He tells them, among other prophecies, that they will find a fortune and that they will see a cow on the roof.
Blind Seer : You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek. But first… first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril. Mm-hmm. You shall see thangs, wonderful to tell. You shall see a… a cow… on the roof of a cotton house, ha. And, oh, so many startlements.
