A Case of Graphic Design Gone Wrong

I didn't have my camera and was lucky enough to find this on the web.

While walking in the West Village the other day, I looked up and saw this restaurant. I couldn't believe my eyes - a restaurant called Cummy? What would they serve there? Then, on the other hand, I was in the West Village.

It wasn't until I noticed that there was a Y within the C shape, that it was actually called Yummy. why the confusing C?

And while we're asking questions, why did they use the adjective "shawarmy?" Are they implying that their restaurant is like shaving meat off a skewer and putting it in a sandwich?
