3 1/2 minutes)
Our sister Jane called me and my brother the Pineapple Man one morning and said, "If you want to be on TV, come on down to Ravanelli's. Show Me St. Louis is here filming."  So we went down to act as customers.  We got free food too!  This was the first time I had ever eaten fried chicken for breakfast.  They asked me how I usually felt after eating there. I'm the guy in the spot that say's, "...Very full, and satisfied,… and guilty". Appearing in this feature in addition to myself and the Pineapple Man, is our mom, our sister Jane & her husband Bill.  Their son Bill is one of the owners.  Right now, I'm waiting for Hollywood to call.
