My Peachtree Street: Guess Were I Had My Lunch

Nope. Ahah. It wasn't the sultry "Cheetah" were I went for lunch the other day, no sir. I didn't watch a table dance with a chubby sandwich in one hand and a dollar bill in the other at the valuptuous "Pink Pony" either. A busty "Hooters" might cross your mind. No way, I can't stand the sight of drooling teens. Well, how about the old sweet southern joint right 'round the corner?! I can confirm, these things, they claim to be the best at their house, they really are, yes sir... deep fried.

Seriously, to the out-of-towners, the irony of this is, the restaurant serves as a favorite gathering spot for local conservativer right wing politicians (of which no shortage here in Georgia). I see the sign as a manifest to the hypocrisy of so many politicians, who like to preach to the others about the family values, until they get caught in sex scandals themselves, to which we had too many samples lately. I think the busboy, who put the sign up, was way too smart. :-)

Preach it, Brother!

And I love the perspective of this sign. Well done.
vz-nostalgia: If you ever get burnt with a desire for good breasts, deep fried that is, give me a buzz, I'll take you there. smile

Somehow the lout's catchcry of "Garn...show us yer deep-fried chicken flesh" doesn't quite have the same kick to it.

I wonder where folks do this "voting"? There are several places in Bangkok that advertise things like "World's Best Fried Chicken".
vz-nostalgia: You might as well hang "World's Best Photographer of All Sorts of Bugs" above your door, Ray. I'll vote for you. smile
Don`t get me started on the hypocrisy of politicians - I might never stop! Lovely angle on this one, and the wording certainly captures the attention. (:o)
vz-nostalgia: smile, Ms. Roz.

vz-nostalgia: There is nothing better than a few minutes of a good laugh, Ms. Tracy. smile
Very cool. Love that you have included part of the restaurant sign too - makes a good composition
vz-nostalgia: That is a challenge we often face, Aksel, how to build a good composition from nothing. smile
