Well, maybe not her.  But John Tesh might have!

Quick! Everybody join in with a quick chorus of the Love Theme from Entertainment Tonight!

Not really a foot, but more like a diabetically-predisposed fat kid, sort of a blond Mason Reese.

And for the record, John C Fremont from over at CC has discovered that there are really and truly “Go Nuts Donuts”.  They’re made in the Philippines.  The website is hideous, like a Teletubbie wet-dream. Ick.

New storyline in Mark Trail! Alert! Alert! And for the second time, it looks like the bad guys (yes! TWO of them!) have no discernible facial hair.  If this keeps up, Mark is going to punch Johnny Malotte out of sheer frustration.

Then again, if acquiring Rusty’s camera with the incriminating photos in it is so simple, we might be working on a totally new storyline by the beginning of next week.  Maybe it’ll have an Evil Saquatch in it!

Hey, Baldy McBadguy!  I guess you’re evil when you don’t understand the concept of “No means No!”.  Rusty doesn’t want to sell his camera, even for a gajillion dollars.  If you and your buddy are on the lam, why don’t you just get the hell out of town (what’s keeping you in Lost Forest, for god’s sake?!?) and go somewhere where there might be a slightly-larger population base that you can melt into?  And where the post office has more than two “Wanted” posters?

But I digress.  “Forget it, Baldy — it’s Lost Forest.”

…but it’s not like the characters in Mary Worth are living through anything but the mid-20th Century.  No, Jeff isn’t under any moral or monetary responsibility to help out his daughter with the wedding, but you just know he’d blow a gasket if he weren’t invited to walk his little angel down the aisle.

And like in a sentimental way, not a crazy cat-lady way!  Dean Booth over at his new blog site, Dean’s Comic Booth, said some very nice things about me and this site (“master of the Rex Morgan mashup” is a compliment, right? Right?), and more folks have been coming here as a result.  Advertising works!

Thanks, Dean!  Your site is keen (not Keane), and if you haven’t checked out Dean’s antics, please treat yourself:

Since I didn’t have a really good place to put this, I’ll stick it here:

Please note that in this Sunday’s RMMD, Guido is sporting some fantastic-looking skin tone!  He’s apparently of Latin heritage at last, as opposed to being the sad victim of some congenital, jaundice-producing syndrome.  The panel above demonstrates the new and improved Second Officer.

Of course, you know this won’t last!

While we’re waiting for the Next Exciting Installment, I’m messing around with great expressions. Again.

But wait! There’s more!

I really love Rex Morgan! I know, I know — I’m repeating myself.  But two silly little panels from the 12 March 2009 can just send me into a swoon. It doesn’t advance the plot, either the real one or mine.  But you know what?  I don’t have a plot!  Bwahahahahaha!

(It would be better with Dr. Andy around, but swooners can’t be choosers, or something like that.)

Oh, wait. Go With a WINNER! Ah, that’s better!

The current Mary Worth story-line is boring me to tears. College-grad medical doctor Adrian is apparently being sucked in by a flim-flam artist and doesn’t see it.  (Then again, Rex Morgan is an M.D., too, and there are whole forests of 2×4’s with his his name written on them.)

I pass the time hoping that grifter Ted and griftee Toby meet up.  It’s not going to happen, but a girl can dream…

Gosh, I love Rex Morgan. I think if I could only mashup one strip, it would be his (okay, with occasional sojourns into other strips, particularly when the Judge Parker universe has a dress-in-an-outfit-two-sizes-too-small-for-you story going).

But I love Rex and all of the new, fairly well-developed characters that are introduced, too.  Even if they really aren’t part of the strip.

Comments Off on Ay, caramba!

Or maybe Margo Magee’s estranged father! And his friend Dr. Morgan! And his kissy-face!

What Margo really, really wants to know: Where’s my $&#*(@ pizza?!

I’m not a huge fan of Apartment 3G, but sometimes strips align themselves very nicely, kind of like the full moon last night.
