Either you like green chile or you are wrong!

Ann Margret & Elvis Presley on a Western set

   And, while we're on a Western set.

"Johnny Yuma was a rebel,
he roamed through the West. . ."

Actor NICK ADAMS (1931 – 1968), who was born on July 10th. He is best known to audiences as Johnny Yuma of the TV series The Rebel (1959 - 1961).

My memory of a funny Seinfeld bit:
Kramer: "I'm a rebel, Jerry."
Seinfeld: "No, Johnny Yuma was a rebel."

The actual script:
KRAMER: No, no, he's out. He got out. See, the medical establishment, see, they tried to frame him. It's all politics. But he's a rebel.

JERRY: A rebel? No. Johnny Yuma was a rebel. Eckman is a nut. George, you want to take care of your tonsils, you do it in a hospital. With a doctor.

   When the Macedonians, led by Alexander The Great's father Philip, were conquering the surrounding area, they sent a message to the Spartans telling them that "you are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city."

   The message he got back from the Spartans was only one word.
