Hi, I'm Rex, I'm a dinosaur and this is my blog.


Lunch. By Rex.

The other day a student came up to me and said, “Rex, being that you are the most handsome and awesome dinosaur in all the Earth, I imagine you would be able to find out where the quesadilla maker is on campus.”

First part of that sentence? Truer words have never been spoken.

Second part of that sentence? Huh?

This was news to me that there are rumors floating around campus of a quesadilla maker somewhere in the building.

So I asked Norm, “Hey, jerk, what’s this about there being a quesadilla maker on campus?”

Norm informed me that Paul Pezich, the Most High Muckety Muck and Supreme Emperor of Finance here at AIP, was told to order a quesadilla maker, so he did.

Problem is no one seems to be sure who requested it and now it sits and no one is using it because they haven’t bothered to bring in the necessary ingredients to make a quesadilla.

Until now.

Dear staff and students at AIP, there will be octopus and possum quesadillas available for sale tomorrow, prepared specially by yours truly, Rex. A side of mushed sheep entrails can also be purchased for just a small additional cost.  You don’t have to ask where the sale will be held, just follow the sounds of the screaming octopi.

Also, staff at AIP, if you don’t use the quesadilla maker, you don’t get to raise a stink about it when someone finally does.

Speaking of stink … these quesadillas are delicious.

  1. Maybe AiP’s fabulous Culinary students could give the staff and faculty lessons in quick workplace lunches that can be made easily in the quesadilla maker. Just not the possum and octopi ones- Monongahela octopus is a little too chewy.

  2. Isn’t that the point of food? To be chewy? Would you prefer your octopi have the consistency of a Butterfinger?

    I’m an EXCELLENT cook. Come by today and see for yourself that chewy + stink + heat = delicious.
