Rex Morgan, M.D.? More like Gay Sex Morgan, M.D.!

So, I had a little quickie ready to do for Saturday’s Rex Morgan:

Rex Morgan, M.D., 2/18/06

I think it was going to involve the phrase “From the people who brought you the Wildly Overacted Margo Reaction Shot™, it’s the Wildly Overacted Rex Reaction Shot™!” or some such thing. That’s before I saw what a hot, heavin’ hunk of thinly veiled homosexuality awaited me on Sunday and realized that it might not be so overacted after all:

Rex Morgan, M.D., 2/19/06

February 19th’s Rex Morgan, M.D.: How gay art thou? Let me count the ways:

  1. Panel two: “Define ‘play’!”
  2. Panel five: “He said you took lessons from him a couple years back!” Radiating surprise lines. “Uh oh … is my cover blown?”
  3. Panel six: Deep, inappropriate discomfort, covered up with tie adjustment. Stuttering. Embarrassment. Desperate attempt to figure out potentially dirty meanings of “saved his life.”
  4. Panel seven: “Like I said .. I’ve heard a lot about you, Rex!” Come-hither stare. Potential three-way at 19th hole in the not-so-distant future.

You know who I think is most shocked by all this same-gender loving, going on (almost) in the open? The purple, ghostly shade of LBJ, in the far left of panel one.

And just because Rex is all gayin’ it up (again), don’t think that events in Sunday’s Mark Trail got past me. This edition was about ospreys or some crap like that, but the most important thing about it is that in it Mark appears to be drunk:

“You know what’s awesome? Frickin’ … ospreys!

    What, Mary Jane can’t push a button on a camera? Is she really that stupid? And it that’s the case, professional photographer Peter Parker doesn’t own a tripod? I’m well aware of the difficulties of being a superhero in LA, believe me, but getting a picture should not be a major problem.

    Troy? Rex? John Clements? Who doesn’t belong?

    Can we swap out John for a “Randy”? Or bring back a “Buck”?

    Woh-ho! Hot doctors in lust!

    Into golf, Rex? GOLF? Nudge-nudge, wink-wink… I like a big putter. Does he swing? I’ll bet he does, I’ll bet he does… You can carry my balls, Rex. How’s your grip? Tight? Can you grip my club? Eh? Say no more…

    Are you coming on to me, Troy?

    No, not at all. What are you insinuating? Well…, yes.

    Hmm. I’ve a tongue-depressor I’ll bet you’ll like. Say “Ah.”

    Drat. I thought you were a proctologist!

    “Actually, John Clements said you have a natural swing, Rex!”

    Sounds like Rex and Clements are members of the same nudist club.

    You know, hospitals must love Doctor Frank N. Furter here as he’s bound to save them a bundle on radiation therapy. Instead of using some expensive machine, they simply have him flash those pearly whites and the light reflecting off them does the job.

    what amazes me is the nonchalant use of serindipitous in everyday conversation… usually its used in a dramatic way.. not about Golf…

    Is it me, or is Troy being played by Scott Bakula?

    Rex Morgan. Rhymes with “sex organ.” Mere coincidence? I don’t think so…

    A friend of mine had a boss named Morgan. Used to refer to him as “Big ‘M’, small ‘organ’”.

    Is that LBJ? Or is it Spiro Agnew, reading a newspaper and tut-tutting about the nattering nabobs of negativism therein.

    Trail isn’t drunk…he’s baked. That’s a real Spicoli face he’s sporting there.

    I think it’s time we coined the term:

    “homorexuality”

    RMMD – 2.21.2006 – Wow, ya wanna see gay – get a load of panel three today. Rex looks like he was just dubbed belle of the debutant’s ball.

    You pegged it. I’ve seen Rex’s “caught!” look before – on the face of my (married) math teacher when I ran into him in a gay bar.

    And here I never thought Rex Morgan was worth reading.

    I think Rex’s look in the second to last panel says it all. It’s the look of a man whose afraid that his life is over. He looks like he aged several years a second. His weird friend may not be talking about gay sex, but whatever he means it sure is making the poor doctor uncomfortable.

    What is up with the deranged gay doctor man in the last panel whose eyes I have nightmares about?

    What about the second panel in the 2/21 RMMD strip? Dr. Boy-Troy has his eyes completely closed while talking to Rex. Who (besides French Stewart and Charlie Daniels) talks with their eyes closed? Of course, he could be dreaming about Rex going an “exta mile” for him.

    Take it easy on Mark Trail, everyone. He’s just saved Mark Trail-world from evil hilbilly dognappers, and put a lovely (although hapless) hilbilly girl on the right path out of the swamp and into the larger society. If he feels the need to unwind a little, tie one on, and talk incomprehensibly about ospreys, I say he’s earned it.

    Hmmmmm….. Seemingly gay innuendo… LBJ (has some Spiro-like features, but more LBJ-like) nearby… Lyndon was kinda cowboy-like, wouldn’t you say?……

    It’s Brokeback Morgan!

    (Surprised no one beat me to that one)

    LBJ, Spiro? Looks more like the Wizard of Oz. Pay no attention to that purple guy in the first panel. No, not the guy who couldn’t decide of dreads or cornrows. Speaking of colorful characters, if you’re not on camera, as it were, you might turn blue, green, or yellow.

    If you take this week’s strip and replace the work “golf” with “Gay sex”, you get a whole new storyline.

    How long has it been since this golf episode started? Three months? At this typically glacial pace—reading “Rex” is kind of like watching paint dry—18 holes should occupy the strip until, say, 2021.

    I’ve been reading this week’s strips, with Rex teaching his young male friend how to fish. Today’s strip (11/14/07) features a big, pink fish splashing out of the water while Rex tells Niki (spelled like a girl) to “…keep the pressure up” and “He’s huge!”

    Funny stuff
