We all scream for GARlIC ICE CREAM!

Jamie discovered this sign for GARlIC ICE CREAM at a corner roadside fruit stand on the highway midway between Gilroy and Hollister, CA, and astutely noted that the author used serifs on the uppercase i to distinguish it from the lowercase L, an ironic detail I particularly enjoyed.  It's interesting how the mere thought of two ingredients that normally don't go together can evoke such an unpalatable taste in the mouth. Much like the sight of a lowercase L amidst all uppercase letters.
