5 Star Question: Kaps and Friends Theme Song

Who composed the Kaps and Friends theme song? It always manages to put a smile on my face. Would also be curious to know who is singing on the track, but that would technically be asking two questions and I don’t wanna press my luck.😅

Five Star Review and Question

Rempe looks like Happy Gilmore’s boss from when he worked construction. Now that Greg’s on board with Rempe, you guys should make a shirt with his face superimposed on that guy bending Shooter’s iron over his head. “And you can count on me waiting for you in the parking lot.” You’re welcome.

Chopped cheese clarification

The only people who think a chopped cheese is a New York staple are people that have an understanding of New York from Tik tok and YouTube. It is a “famous” food from New York, its origins are in the Bronx. People who live or have lived in New York don’t regard the chopped cheese as a staple.
