A new product from the Rex Jr collection

Note: I have no connection whatsoever with the item I’m writing about in this post. (Since lots of people only read the first sentence of blog posts, I had to get that out of the way.)

Other than this blog, I have never used my first name on a product. However, my friend Rex Sorgatz and I enjoy sharing with one-another amusing sightings of what we call “Brand Rex” items. One day, I’ll fill out this Flickr set I call the Rex Museum with all the links to hotels, bars, theaters, wines, beers and an endless list of other products that have carried the Rex brand. (Rex Beans in the movie Tommy, being my personal favorite.) However, I thought this new addition to the Brand Rex empire was clever and maybe even helpful to some parents of young children out there. Using Google custom search, these folks have set up something called KidRex.org.

  • Lovely idea. Unfortunately the search for “bottom” puts a hate site at the top of the list. Click through and you see fairly disturbing stuff.

  • Apparently it’s a website for a Finnish band… still a lot of hate on that site.
