Who remembers STENDEC written on StinkyBob?

Post by Monglord on Tue Jan 08, 2019 11:00 am

I was watching a documentary about a missing airliner in the '50s on YT t'other day and it was mentioned.
Did anyone work out what it meant when Rex was still about?

Wow what brought that to mind? I'd never have remembered.

I remember reading it on the ammo box he kept tools in and asked him at the time what it meant as it seemed properly random.
In a typically cagey Rex fashion he waffled something and nothing which made it seem like he didn't want to tell me and preferred to keep it as one of those 'mysterious Rex things'.

It just stuck in my mind until I saw this documentary which was pretty interesting anyway and then it all fell into place- can't find the actual documentary on YT now of course.

Needless to say if we ever see Rex again I'll be bringing it up with him- gotta wonder if he knows what it means and how the riddle (seems) to have been answered at last.

Funny enough, that's exactly what Uncle Rex said what it meant.
You must have asked him wrong.

Really?

Pretty sure I got all manner of weird and fantastical replies everytime I asked, which if I am honest was probably the reason I kept asking.

I knew it was related to a radio transmission from a stricken plane.
I think it was Rex who told me.
He must of been selective to whom the secret information was available to or more likely, his state of thinking at the time..

Very Happy

To be fair the vast majority of times I saw Rex there was alcohol involved for either one or both of us and it was a long time ago but then that's the appeal of the guy- the mystery! (or was that misery?)

Yup, every time i asked rex about it i got a different story too


I think at one point he was drinking a 50/50 mix of diesel and petrol whilst pouring cheap vodka into the tank on the mz :p

Ah, i think i`ve got it now.
He told everyone the same story, but i was the only one who had mental faculties functioning to a degree high enough to actually remember what he said the following morning where as you lot just made up your own stories due to a chronic case of alcohol-related amnesia.

I thought Rex's weapon of choice was a spork?

I seem to remember getting the blame for leaving my spoon in his 'ass'.... and I've still not got it back.

But then I don't really want it back after what he did with it No

on the other hand, it may have just been a message from Rex's sponsors:

i refuse to believe rex would have used such proprietary products when there was his favourite mix of used sump oil and methylated spirits still available in this world
