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

Rex

FREE CANDY!

So, yeah, I didn’t make it to the concert last night. I, uh, had something else I had to, uh, do.

Heh.

I will share my, uh, hijinks with you as soon as I get my camera back from Norm who confiscated it when he learned what I did last night. Thievery is such a strong word. I prefer borrowed permanently.

Anyway, while I’m writing the story up for you, why don’t you come visit me tomorrow at AIP’s open house?  There will be a photographer there just to take pictures of me with my fans.  And look!

That’s right! I’m giving away chocolate! Look!

Jake might be there too, in which case you might want to get there early to be sure you get a chocolate dinosaur.  Last time I took Jake to the Hersey Factory, well, let’s just say they don’t let dinosaurs take factory tours anymore.  Some new rule about “jumping in the chocolate vat” and “sucking it dry.”

See you tomorrow!

Various Curiosities

1. The Pirates are unloading players like crazy these last few days.

I wonder if the Pirate Parrot is available for trade because if it is, I think you know what to do: trade a pack of gum for him, knock him unconscious with a tranq gun I’ll give you that I totally didn’t steal from Norm, and then after you’ve rendered him unconscious, bring me the giant bird. With some salt and pepper. And a giant toothpick.

Love you.

2.  The Steelers signed Heath Miller to a six-year deal, which was a smart move considering he is the one human on Earth I consider the closest to being a dinosaur. Or a machine. Or a robot. Or a robot dinosaur.

Let’s go with that.

3.  I think I’ll take Jake to the next AIP open house so he can meet some more humans. I take my mentor duties seriously and the lad clearly needs to practice his don’t eat the people skills.

Stop by and say hi to us if you come. We don’t bite.

LOL!

Get it? We totally bite. Hard.

But still, say hi!

4.  I have been foiled over and over again, mostly by Norm, in my attempts to steal that cuppy thing that lives at Mario’s house.  I’m bringing in reinforcements though, so watch out, Mario. Watch out.  It’s about to get all ninja up in here.

5.  A thought: There needs to be a movie about a ninja dinosaur and I need to star in it.

I’m glad you agree with me.

6.  Smithsonian.com has a post up about the Five Worst Dinosaur Movies of All Time which led me to a movie so bad, so atrocious, so hilariously devoid of anything positive that it might actually make your day.

Let’s do MATH TIME WITH REX!  Making you mathier because I care.

Girl in a brown bikini + dinosaur puppet + director + script – talent – special effects budget – plot – more talent + ridiculousness*763,000 = HAHAHAHAH.  HAHAHAHAH!  HAHAHAHHA!

I can’t pick my favorite part of the trailer. Maybe when the girl leapfrogs to safety, or the giant fake alligator, or maybe when the big fake Graboid shows up.

There’s no telling!

Worst movie ever or WORST BEST movie ever or BEST WORST movie ever?

I can’t decide. But I do know this, Ninja Dinosaur will win an Oscar.

Open Wide.

There is apparently an open house happening today at AIP as evidenced by the hustle and bustle of the staff.

If you go, be sure to stop by and say hi to your good friend Rex.  I’ll be that dinosaur in the corner making polite conversation and sipping a cappuccino whilst I nibble on the bloody carcass of a pterodactyl.

Don’t tell PETA.  I think the pterodactyl is on their protected list or their cherished list or their list of Things We’ll Get Naked For.

But it’s on my list of Delicious Things That Are Hard To Catch.
