Happy Martha Vickers Independence Day, Rex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 1:07pm Mailman Tom:

Ms. Vickers, starred in The Big Sleep. A movie that made no sense whatsoever, but was fun to watch anyway !
  Sat. 7/4/15 1:07pm P-90:

And July Fourth weekend greetings to all fellow Rexpatriots!
  Sat. 7/4/15 1:08pm P-90:

(Or "Rexpats")
  Sat. 7/4/15 1:11pm Stefan Dz:

Thanks for working on July 4th so that we've got a great soundtrack for all the festivities, Rex.

Chris Christie may have to go into the recording industry after his failed Governorship and disastrous run for President
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 1:21pm Mailman Tom:

He'd be the heaviest president since William Howard Taft. He tipped the scales at well over 300 pounds !

Afternoon and Happy 4th, Fools!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 1:28pm kyle a.:

As a west coaster I don't understand... Was Chris Christie's goal to resemble an old UPA cartoon character?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 1:30pm Melissa Jean:

happy 4th Rex n Foolz! after dis I'm going to a fair to ride rides and eat junk, hooray!
  Sat. 7/4/15 1:31pm V Priceless:

Hey Rex
  Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 1:35pm David in ATL from NJ:

Rex, have I told you that your program frightens me...but I like.
  Sat. 7/4/15 1:40pm P-90:

Inexplicably, a lot of girls married Mickey Rooney...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 1:44pm Gaylord Fields:

So, Mickey Rooney ... he had some sort of magic spell-casting amulet, right?
  Sat. 7/4/15 1:53pm Stuart Rose:

Well, if Mickey was such a magnet for starlets, let's stop saying that all these happy unions were inexplicable.
Mickey had, it seems, some kind of sloshed mannish boy vibe. A jailbait quality of sorts.
  Sat. 7/4/15 1:56pm P-90:

"...sloshed mannish boy vibe." Lemme chew on that one fer a couple minutes...
  Sat. 7/4/15 1:57pm DJ Guy:

Brooklyn Zoo! That's what's up great clip
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:01pm P-90:

Oh no.... Rex mentioned Tito's Taco's. Now I'm craving their tacos AND burritos. And I'm on the completely wrong coast. The agony...!
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:03pm P-90:

...their little paper cups of minced Jalopeno hot salsa...their homemade tortilla chips...
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:07pm amira:

I like hot dogs!
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:08pm sinner:

I want the crusty macaronis around the edges of the pan. I'll even pay extry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:11pm Gaylord Fields:

Now why, pray tell, do you think an R&B dance-craze disc based on picking cotton neglected to become a hit with its intended audience?
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:12pm sam:

how many tube steaks did the mighty chestnut pound down ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:12pm Gaylord Fields:

@sam: Chestnut LOST!

He came in second to Matt Stonie, who downed 62 dogs to Chestnut's 60.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:18pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm happy about this, as it reintroduces a strong CE rivalry, like back in the Chestnut vs. Kobayashi days.
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:18pm sam:

holy jezzus...a fix...settin up a pay per view meat jamming spectacular ! no doubt!
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:20pm sam:

theres enuff pay per view meat jamming already !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@sam: I refuse to believe there's any impropriety in competitive eating, the oldest and purest form of sport!
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:23pm sam:

cant argue with that Gaylord
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:24pm sam:

Hurling the farthest is the second oldest competitive sport I think
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 2:25pm dk:

i'm guessing you don't get to be a champion hot-dog swallower if you're from a place with access to decent dogs. it'd be sacrilege to force a fistful of rutt's hut rippers down your gullet after drowning them in a 32oz cup of tepid poland springs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:27pm Gaylord Fields:

I'll take this opportunity to announce that I am willing to take on any and all challengers in an ice cream–eating contest (on a purely amateur level)!

I am serious.
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 2:27pm dk:

... from this observation i develop the following travel advice: when in San Jose, try the tacos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:29pm kyle a.:

Gaylord, you're on! If I run into at Tiki Oasis again we'll make a go of it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:30pm Gaylord Fields:

Banana splits at dawn! I'll be waiting for all comers at my training spot, Torico's!
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:30pm sam:

no taker here Gaylord....if I could temporarily remove my brain , maybe
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@sam: It worked wonders for me.

@kyle a: Don't let your mouth write a check your spoon can't cash!
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:32pm sam:

somebody notify the news media...this could be the beginning of a new new York tradition !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Two hot dogs with some ketchup on a bun fills me up just fine. Maybe a third one a while later. If you need a training partner for the ice cream, Gaylord, I'd be happy to oblige.
  Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:35pm David in ATL from NJ:

Criminally insane in cages. Alright. Bring the family out.
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:36pm ETHEL:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Ken From Hyde Park: You're now a member of Team Gaylord! I expect you to be able to handle at least six scoops a sitting, for starters.
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:44pm Blurb Clippington:

Chestnut ate more than 1.8 gallons of ice cream in six minutes Saturday...(Gaylord did say "any and all comers" didn't he?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:47pm Gaylord Fields:

@Blurb Clippigton: I also said I didn't want to jeopardize my amateur status. Some of us aren't in it for the money.
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:52pm Blurb Clippington:

I admire your purity of purpose Gaylord.
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:53pm Blurb Clippington:

Just a matter of time til the Olympics latch on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My new meal plan: breakfast > vanilla; dinner > strawberry; supper > chocolate. And some pistachio on Sundays. Midnight snacks will consist of cherry swirl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:57pm JakeGould:

How about a 50 piece McNugget bucket in 1 sitting? For a mere $10 you can be famous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:57pm Gaylord Fields:

Even though this is, by all metrics, quite hilarious, I wish I was kidding about this hero's journey of mine.
  Sat. 7/4/15 2:57pm Cosmic caveman:

Lets monkey around like a chimpanzebra
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 2:59pm Gaylord Fields:

@JakeGould: I'm a vegetarian — though that doesn't stop pro CE participants who also are veg from consuming meat. But I do this out of love of ice cream. And of winning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 3:00pm Gaylord Fields:

Do it, @Ken From Hyde Park!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 3:01pm Philthy woman:

Thanks for infusing some energy into an otherwise rather dreary day here!
  Sat. 7/4/15 3:01pm Sam:

If Gaylord's buyin...I predict a Nathan's like turnout
  Sat. 7/4/15 3:01pm Cosmic caveman:

Bye Rex...bye
