Rex Is Slanderous!

It must be Tuesday… Slanderous Minneapolis has posted a new “Totally Legitimate Interview” with our own Rexy. Slanderous asks some legitimate questions but Rex seems to dance around the answers, at one point blaming ex-girlfriends for “not being able to blog about certain topics.” What R U hiding Rex? Ah, it’s all in good fun, and Rex will answer additional questions if you post them in the comments.

Up Next: That *$#@&! Applebee’s

Call me a snobby cynic, but this is the best news downtown Minneapolis has had in a long time: TGI Friday’s and Copeland’s are closing.
