J. Wellington Wimpy Loves Culver's

For those of us old enough to remember the original Popeye cartoon series or if you ever saw Popeye the movie, you'll know that J. Wellington Wimpy was Popeye's friend. Wimpy was very intelligent, and well educated, but also very lazy. Wimpy loved to eat hamburgers and was usually seen carrying or eating one or more at a time or seen grinding meat almost the entire time – however, he was usually too cheap to pay for them himself. "Cook me up a hamburger. I'll pay you Thursday" was his best-known catchphrase.

I have quite a bit in common with Wimpy, mostly my love for a good hamburger. Although I tend to stay away from the fast-food version of a hamburger, there are several restaurants here in the valley of the sun I frequent from time-to-time for a delicious burger. And, of course, you can't beat a juicy char-broiled burger which just came off the grill from your own backyard. Yum!

Recently, a new chain has opened here in Phoenix that I am finding hard to resist - Culver's. In my opinion, their burgers are far better than any of the other fast-food joints and I'm sure Wimpy would even agree. Their specialty is the butter burger. Oh, my! Like other franchised operations they, too, offer a menu full of basket meals where you can select from a number of mouth-watering sides. Let me tell you, their onion rings are absolutely divine.

Yesterday, as I was perusing the Internet, I came across a fabulous offer from Culver's. If you join their eClub you will receive a coupon for a buy one, get one free value basket meal. For those of you who have never ventured to Culver's, this offer is an excellent opportunity for you to give them a try and "Get Culverized". For those of you who already enjoy Culver's...bonus!

If you have not entered this week's Caption This! contest, you have until midnight tonight to do, get goin'!


  1. I can honestly say since coming to California 5 months ago, I've only eaten at fast food places under 10 times..go figure..

    But back in Ohio my weakness was Steak N Shake and their Frisco Burgers...OMG heaven in my mouth!!

  2. We have a local place called "The Works". They have huge home cooked burgers (over 50 on the menu) with everything from a fried egg to peanut butter as condiments. They are delicious. Wimpy would have thought he'd died and gone to heaven.

  3. Gee, I could have had a, instead of that frozen pizza.

    I knew I should have stopped here before lunch.

  4. We've had Culvers for many years but I have never been to one. Something about "butter burger" scares me, or at least my cholesterol levels. I've always wanted to try one so maybe after eating nothing but lettuce for a few days I can justify it, especially with a buy one get one coupon. Thanks!

  5. Oh yum! I wish I lived in America... But we have our local Hesburger, and they have the best hamburger sauce ever.

  6. Now I'm starving. Too bad there's not a Culvers near where we live. Guess I'll have to grill my own...or go to Pals. I love burgers but my favorite is a Chuck-wagon (chicken-fried steak)sandwich. Yumm.

  7. Loved the post although it made me hungry.

    Have a good week-end.

  8. Here in Ann Arbor we have a place called Blimpy Burgers that serves the goshdarn, real, greatest variety of burgers. Wonderful!

  9. never heard of Culver's I wonder if there are any around here. I could go for a good burger right now.

  10. Mmmm... must-have-onion-rings. And oh, yes. I remember Popeye and Wimpy like it was yesterday which, sadly, it was not.

  11. I remember that phrase also! We don't have a Culver's here but I do love a good burger more than pizza even!

  12. I've heard of Culver's but don't think we have them here in Michigan. I pretty much have to make a burger myself if I want a good one!

  13. I've seen these Culver places, but never tried one. Now I think I will next time I get to Phoenix, which could be soon, actually. Gots to go now, 'cause I'm really hungry.

  14. I don't do fast food very often at all, but Culver's and Chic-Fil-A are my top two. I just try not to think too hard about what I'm eating. But it tastes so good!

  15. I remember Wimpy and his love of hamburgers. Of course, that shows my age too.

    Culver's must be unique to your area. I've never heard of them before.

  16. Who doesn't like Burgers?

    silly people, that's who! I don't trust them.

  17. we just got a new Culver's about 10 minutes from us. Haven't eaten there yet...not much of a fast food person...except for Toxic Hell (aka Taco Bell). For some reason that shit calls my name once a month.....heh....damn ovaries....

  22. I have taken notice that in video cameras, specialized detectors help to
    aim automatically. The sensors of some camcorders change in in the area of contrast, while others
    employ a beam involving infra-red (IR) light, specially in low lighting.
    Higher specification cameras sometimes use a blend of both models and probably have Face Priority AF where the
    video camera can 'See' your face while focusing only on that.
    Many thanks for sharing your opinions on this weblog.

  27. Thanks for your write-up on this blog. From
    my personal experience, occasionally softening right up a photograph
    may possibly provide the photographer with a little an artistic flare.

    Oftentimes however, that soft cloud isn't exactly what you had in mind and can quite often spoil a normally good picture, especially if you consider enlarging this.
