Piggly Wiggly is a real place. Not just something made up on TV.

Haha! That's great. Wonder why we don't have any of those in CA?

Now is there such thing as a Winn-Dixie as well?

Princess said...

Ha Ha, never would have guessed it! Glad to see your blog.

Kaileigh Blue said...

Oh great that totally makes me fell like I live in, as someone put it today "Bumblefuck, Nowhere" Because we totally have those. I didn't even know they were on tv.

Desmond_Pen said...

yeah, my son works at Winn-Dixie ;)

Piggly Wiggly was founded here in Memphis in 1916. It was the first self-serve grocery.

Pam said...

My husband always teases me about the Piggly Wiggly, which is a fine, upstanding institution (haven't told him about Winn-Dixie yet). I never knew I grew up in a Southern family until I came to California and they didn't know about that, or chicken and dumplings, ham and beans and fried potatoes - sigh. LOL

redelf said...

Zana said...

Jaja, y eso que es??? sos un maestro jorge, actorazo! saludos desde Argentina!

Rhonda said...

Jorge you must be in the middle of nowhereville cuz we have one here and we are as country as country gets! I've only seen them in small rural towns but I haven't traveled that far so I could be wrong.

Topanga said...

You should try the Lick-A-Chick Restaurant in Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia. They boast the "Worlds Best Hamburger" and I believe them!!

Jenn said...

You've obviously never been to the south. You can't turn a corner around here without seeing one. They always remind me of driving miss daisy when morgan freeman says, I'm comin to drive you to the sto'. He was talking about the Piggly Wiggly. Oh yeah...it's famous!

LP said...

jajaja esta bueno el montaje

Ana Maria. said...

Hahaha, very good picture. But... I'm lost, is a restaurant? What kind of food eat there? A pig with and apple in the mouth? Haha, I'm bad :o)

Saludos Jorge!


Nicole said...

Oh, wow. I'm from Georgia and we literally have those everywhere. lol. I'm actually amazed that some people have never heard of it. hehe.

Liann said...

I'm in San Antonio, Tx. We used to have those everywhere, now they are all gone I think. Ever seen a Handy Andy? I think we still have a couple of those left. My Dad used to manage one and fell in love with one of his checkers when they were kids..... my Mommy is HAWT! :)

McD said...

I'm from Georgia, too, and they are very prevalent in the more rural areas of the state. I've even seen a smaller grocery store by the same company that was called "Piglet."

Topanga said...

I remember Handy Andy from when I was growing up in Quebec. :-)

Joey Polanski said...

Let us know if you evr run across a Wiggly Piggly.

Colleen said...

I use to shop there in Nebraska, and never could get use to the clerk saying "Thank you for coming to Piggly Wiggly".

I would always giggle and walk out. I'm sure they were thinking, "Stupid Colorado people."

Nicole said...

LOL! I never knew they really existed! I guess Piggly Wiggly stores are not a California thing

l said...

Piggly Wiggly is all over Mississippi. One of the Cohen's brothers wore the PW shirt during the filming of O Brother Where Art Thou (filmed in Canton, MS).

mabochda said...

I had someone ask me recently what a Piggly Wiggly was. She relocated to the South and had never heard of it. I thought they only existed in NC and Winn Dixie too! Was surprised to see it elsewhere. You can get some good deals on meats :)

Martha Isabel said...

That is one awesome pic!

keri marion said...

this is the funniest thing i've ever seen. well, at least the funniest thing i've seen this week. you're the best.

ZealousCease said...

Hell yeah it's a real place, haha. I thought we only had them in the South. Heh.

ben said...

rebafallawake said...
