Nickels, po boys, and teddy bears

Are you kidding me? If I had a nickel for every time in 2009 that I either typed, said, or heard the word "onward," I'd have a real big-ass pile of nickels. So, when I stumbled upon this town (below) in my stealth Chevy MOAS, what choice did I have but to, ironically, stop?
