Hey Bob, do you know what the difference is in one of Captain Kutchie’s Famous King Size Sirloin Steak Sandwiches and an Ashton Kutcher Movie is?
The Steak Sandwich is GOOD!…..ha, ha, ha…
There have been Fights over who gets served first!
And don’t forget the Key Lime Pie!…It’s To Die For.
Do you ever wonder if we are being watched?..
Oh and this: "The Lord Loves A Working Man". And to make this one easy for you, it's from "The Jerk"!....1979 with Steve Martin. And This "Miss Anita and Captain Kutchie Pelaez's World Famous Key Lime Pie and that's all I need. Well maybe this Kutchie's Famous King-Size Sirloin Steak Sandwich, and that's all I need. Well maybe I'll take this Goody Goody, The Original Cheese Burger in Paradise too, and that's all I need. Well maybe I'll need this Ice Cold Kutcharita to flush it all down with. And That's All I Need!.
And Bob, Are you still finding it hard to believe that "Kutcharitaville" really exists and that it's not just a figment of your imagination? Or that Donald Trump just became the President Elect. Or does Captain Kutchie Pelaez and his Beautiful Wife Anita really bake World Famous Key Lime Pies and that Carrier Air Conditioners are staying right here in America. Well Bob, all I can tell you, in the words of the Famous Captain Kutchie Pelaez (Keep The Faith Baby!) And Really, Really Believe It And Close You're Eyes And Someday It Will Really, Really Come True!!!!...
And Bob, Here is a dead Giveaway (.....................) Right?
.Here is a blast from the past, a 50 year old blast. June 1, 1967, Dr. Pepper's Lonely Farts Club Hand Band Drink. It made such a profound effect in my life. No it's no COVFEFE, I'll never be the same again, how about you.
.Roger Ramjet and The Man From The Older Country.
