when the corner grocery is called "Shiv's."

All I did was kick up the contrast of this a bit in photoshop so it's easier to read. So if it looks a little photoshopped, I assure you I didn't add anything to it other than a little white balance and burning in.

I took this at the red light on my phone out of my sister van this weekend when I was in Savannah. I just thought it was funny.

Reminds me, the corner store by the street where I grew up is called "Reload"

Hmmmm.

Actually, that sounds like an EXCELLENT name for a corner store. Might give would-be robbers a little food for thought.

Heck, maybe "Shiv's" was meant to do just that.

I know, the car wash sign's a nice touch. That kind of made me smile.

Shiv/shank: Prison/street lingo for a sharp object. Knife, sharpened toothbrush handle, etc.

Savannah is a long way from Harlem.

I'm trying to decide which is worse...
The Shogun of Harlem running a car wash in Savannah or me remembering that movie after 27 years.

The movie is to be remembered for all of eternity. Its a CLASSIC. They're even remaking it!

Shiv's is pretty funny but Shonuff caught my eye first. I'm a dork. But I possess the power of The Glow!
