Obadiah Rutledge is the fastest-talking man in Oregon. How many things can he say in 2:00 minutes? Watch the Fastest Talking Man In the World in action. (YouTube. Thank you, Earl)

Um... I'm not Obadiah Rutledge (who from some Google research has an NPR piece for speaking fast in the Oregon state legislature), but I am Ryan Reeder, the guy in the video you linked to.
Again, I created and perform in the "Speed Talking" video you linked to. I actually don't claim to be the "fastest talking man in the world," somebody else put that on there when they decided to put up a clone video (which now has more hits on Youtube than my original version). I'm not from Oregon, I'm from Utah. My name is Ryan Reeder, not Obadiah Rutledge. That's somebody else.
