A friend told me the Piggly Wiggly would accept a check with a drawing of a pig on the recipient line, instead of the words "Piggly Wiggly". I tried it and it worked, no questions asked. I suppose an amateur cartoon drawing of a pig is never any sillier than the name "Piggly Wiggly".

The Piggly Wiggly is the only supermarket in the three-town area where I grew up in rural Tennessee, and everyone calls it "The Pig".

Hey I'm goin' to the Pig. Y'all need me to pick up anything?
