Remind Us of Anyone?

Desi Arnaz’s, from I Love Lucy, heavy Cuban accent often made retakes necessary. His enunciation of "recognized talent" came out as "recognize Stalin," He said "ever thin" for "everything" and "mushing peectures" for "motion pictures," while "won’t" was "wunt" and "Fred Mertz" was "Frat Mers."

Is it supposed to remind us of someone?

I thought what was funny about that was that Lucy used it to comedic advantage. Classic stuff...still my favorite show of all time! Hugs, Beth
