The Hoarse Radish – Morton Williams Market, Bleecker Street at LaGuardia Place, New York, New York

The Hoarse Radish – Morton Williams Market, Bleecker Street at LaGuardia Place, New York, New York
Morton Williams, founded in 1954, is a family-owned and operated food retailer with eleven stores in the New York City Metropolitan area. The store advertises that each location " is designed to reflect the needs of the individual neighborhood." Presumably, the people who live in Greenwich Village need puns. For those whose mother language is not English, the cartoon on the right hand side of the photo puns on the word "horseradish." And for those unfamiliar with American popular culture, the cartoon on the left hand side refers to CHiPs, a television program depicting the lives of two motorcycle police officers of the California Highway Patrol. The series ran for 139 episodes over six seasons from 1977 to 1983.
