Note that /bin/sh in all Linux'es is symlinked to bash while /bin/ash is 
what you really want to use here. It's stripped down to include only 
'sh' support layer.

It's also a good practice when she-banging sh-scripts to add a dash 
after handler so no one can pass any arguments to your script:

#!/bin/ash -

Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow.
