You remember him as the owner/manager of the popular fast food chain Mondo Burger. I remember him as the man who taught me how to live again. Those words he said to me the first time I met him I will never forget:
You think you’re funny, don’t you, bro? Well you know what, at Mondo Burger, there are no comedians. You mess with Kurt and you go into the grinder.
It was at that moment I realized I don’t ever want to go into the grinder. That was terrifying to think about. So I gave up a life of heroin, methamphetamine, crack cocaine, bath salts, cocaine, beer, vodka, whiskey, PCP, fortified wines, tobacco, marijuana, undersized fast food burger patties, various prostitutes, ketchup on hot dogs, skydiving, unpasteurized milk, opium, kinder eggs, indecent exposure, and Minecraft.
I knew I’d be ok because Kurt was now my mother and my father…
He’s always looking out for me and he’ll look out for you too….
OR YOU GO INTO THE GRINDER!
