Cookin’ from Scratch, Doolittle, MO

This is at a restaurant near where my daughter played basketball today in the Missouri Ozarks.

We didn’t know if it was a real sign from an old business, but this greeted us in the dining room.

My Dad wasn’t sure this was the best advertising for the coffee cups.

    All excellent specimens! How far away were all these things located from each other? I need me a trip to the Ozarks.

    I absolutely LOVE the car. There must be some company somewhere that manufactures large roosters and chickens that love to ride in cars as this one has been spotted around LA a lot:

    I can only imagine what Pucky Huddle Mercantile sells. It sounds like the name of a rock ‘n roll band who does kiddie gigs during the day.

    I’m totally with your dad on the sanity of funeral homes choosing coffee cups as the best souvenirs. I have a few of them myself and they always spook me out to drink out of them. But the combo of funeral home and nice relaxing drink is so preposterous, it skyrockets up the ladder of kitsch.

    How great that you got all three of these sightings stuffed into one morning! I can’t wait to see what your tomorrow holds!

      Allee thank you so much for the Certifikitch! I am so excited! All 3 of these pictures were taken at the same location. I moved here to the Ozarks from Frankfurt Germany in 2003, and I have to say that the Ozarks are unlike any other place I have ever lived!! Lots of interesting people and kitch! You would love it. Thanks again so much for the certifikitch. I can’t wait to submit some more!

    I don’t what’s kitschier..the chicken or that it’s in an old El Camino!!! The funeral home coffee mug is beyond comprehension…When a loved one passes, the first thing I try to remember is that phone number I read on that cup of coffee I had a week ago, that’s for sure….Seriously, how effective is that advertising?! I’m truly curious!!!

      Yes, we thought it was hilarious. We couldn’t help but wonder if drinking the coffee would be hazardous to our health! LOL

    Now how’s this for weird synchronicity. While i was looking thru pictures for the pink poodle last night, i came across basically this same picture, a red El Camino with a big rooster in the back. The car did not have the Cookin From Scratch logo on the side of it though. I have no idea where my picture comes from, who sent it to me or when i got it. I’ll have to pull it back out this evening and do a side by side taste test comparison.

    I always wanted an El camino, but it would really be fun to have one with a rooster in the bed!

    And, I agree with your Dad.

    As many times in the past 15 years that I have passed by there and eaten there (best fried Cat Fish in the universe) that I did not think of the kitschness of it since joining this site! You go girl! Extreme jealous but I still lubbers you Elisa!
