Lafayette: Are There Georgians Here?


No sunflower seeds, Chenier Branch, Lafayette Library, Lafayette, Louisiana.



This sign is on the entrance to the Chenier Branch of the Lafayette Library System.

The sign made me smile because it reminded me of Caucasus Georgia. 

It warrants a re-post from June 27, 2012, on the subject of Georgians and sunflower seeds:

Georgians Have Been Here

Georgians love sunflower seeds.

I could write a post on this, but TLG colleague, Lauren, has already done it so well here.

My fantasy is of a murder mystery, where a savvy detective arrives upon the scene of the crime, looks everything over, then pronounces, "The killer is from Georgia."  When all of her comrades look at her, with mouths open, brows raised, the detective, a woman of few words, points to the ground next to the body and says, "Sunflower seeds."
