Hey, Isn't That Grandma on That Guy's Shirt?!

Walking through Little Tokyo a couple of years back, I came across this guy that was wearing a shirt with my grandma's face on it!  It was shocking, but awesome!  I knew I couldn't let this moment go by undocumented, so I walked right up to him and said, "that's my grandma on your shirt.  Can I take a picture with you?"  The guy was pretty surprised as well, but I think he enjoyed this little coincidence.

Based on this original
