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.
