Grits or homefries


When I saw this sign I thought of a couple of people who would appreciate it, so I went back later with my camera to take this snap. “We served grits or homefries.” Past tense. Ha ha ha. Get it? They are ignorant, I am superior. How are they going to attract customers with a historical trivium such as this? And an ambiguous one at that: does “grits or homefries” mean they don’t know which they once served?

The joke was on me, as the photo turned out to be strikingly beautiful in its own right.
