He died about 5 years after that appearance
My bad. It was Rex Trailer. Like it makes a difference.
Did Rex Trailer have a chain of delicious fast food restaurants named after him?
Real food for real people.
I use a carpenter/handyman named Roy Rogers. He drives his truck which he has named Trigger. I asked the guy he works with if Roy ever calls him Tonto. Seems he tried to when they first started working together, but Alfredo would have none of it. True story.
The Montreal Canadians used to have a goalie named Patrick Roy, pronounced, Roo-aah', prompting Bruins coach Don Cherry to say that. "If if he's Roo-aah' then my favorite cowboy was Roo-aah' Rogers."
-E. Nelson Bridwell, Mad Magazine, circa 1958
Roy's restaurants aren't anything to brag about. They're still in some of the service areas on the NY State Thruway. I always thought they were called Roy Rogers because the burgers taste like they were made with some of Trigger's old relatives. :lol:
The Roy Rogers in Cincinnati actually has pretty good roast beef.
I still make sure I stop into the Roy Rogers in Ft. Belvoir, Virginia when I am near it. It is the closest one to me. They have real roast beef, whereas Arby's has.. who knows what that stuff is?
I've been to several and it varies with the site.
Story I used to hear when I lived in Cincinnati was that he was born on second base at Riverfront Stadium.
Not sure where that is now that they tore it down to build Great American Ballpark.
Not sure where second base is, but first base is marked in the lobby of a restaurant. We did try to find it, based on first and the roses, but the area has been completely developed, and would be almost in recognizable even to someone that was there when the new parks opened.
You SURE it's beef?
If Pappa Rogers only got to second base, there wouldn't have been a Lil Roy.
I don't think those Roy's are related to the new ones. After Marriott retired the name, some guy in Frederick, MD bought it from them. He has been slowly expanding from there. They just opened a new one near me in Burtonsville, MD. Every time I go by, there is a line at the drive-through that goes all the way around the building. We've eaten there once, so far. While the roast beef sandwich isn't as big as I remember, the fries were tiny, and the price is way more that it used to be, it is indeed genuine roast beef, as compared to Arby's, which is some sort of pressed meat.
Yes, it is still fast food, but it is better than any other fast food outlet in this part of the country.
In Roy's ancestry there was no Papa Rogers but there was a Papa Slye.
Roy Rogers had nothing to do with the character of Tonto since he never played the Lone Ranger.
Now, if your handyman started calling his co-worker "Dale," that might be appropriate.
And the guy's truck should have been named Nellybelle!
