Metapost: Fun with Photoshop, gay cowboy edition

So in a comment on yesterday’s post, faithful commentor Harry said something that stuck with me:

The last panel of Rex Morgan looks remarkably like the posters for Brokeback Mountain.

Considering how much time we all spent snickering about “Brokeback Morgan” some months ago, it sure got me thinking. Here are the two images next to each other for easy comparison:

It’s even more striking if we flip Jake and Heath around the other way:

It sure is … interesting.

    I guess I have to state the obvious regarding Rex. The answer to someone saying, “Surely you knew it would end like this.” is not “Of course… but I just couldn’t help myself.” Nitwit. Glowing eared nitwit.

    The answer is “Of course… but I just couldn’t help myself. And DON’T call me ‘Shirley’.”

    “It’s” NOT ending like this-
    It’s an entirely new BEGINNING!
    oh, my!
    Next panel -
    At the video store renting “Valley of the Dolls”…

    Taking that panel in isolation and in context with the two cowboys, this is how it SHOULD read:
    “surely you knew it would end like this!”
    “of course…but i just couldn’t help myself! …. God, I wish I knew how to quit you!

    Now, this twist is much more fun than anything else the writers of Rex would ever come up with. Yay for Brokeback Morgan!

    Sweet baby Jesus…Gasoline Alley: Slim’s son’s name is Rover. He gave his kid a DOG’s name. And a woman actually married a man with a DOG’s name. Of course, I’m astounded that anyone married a piece of work like Slim, even that googly-eyed freak Clovia. Could this pack of (derogatory epithets for poor white people who breed with close relatives) be any more grotesque?

    (I hate to keep bringing this up…but I was hoping that, at some point, Slim would have this epithany about his idiot behavior. To recap: he let animals carry off his grandson, stole food, threw fuel at squirrels, started a forest fire, and taught his grandson to lie about the whole thing. He enraged God to the point that when he asked Big Guy to save his worthless ass, God responded by drowning him–only for Slim to be rescued by the animals whose home he destroyed. In the end, he recognizes not one iota of his fault in the mess, and all he receives in punishment is poison ivy. Unless God’s whippin’ up a lifetime of boils as a Plan B punishment…*crosses fingers*)

    Luann: Wait, Bernice drove Luann to the emergency room, she got treatment, and returned home…and there was a sandwich burning on the stove the whole time? Please let me know what town you live in, sweetheart. They have the best hospital EVAR.

    GA: I believe that for various reasons all the characters should die in retribution for their stupidity. it’s bad enough they named a kid Rover, but that he’d seek out a girl, named Hoogy?)Or that they’d make an informed decision to name their child “Boog” not a nickname, an actual given name, if he grew up in my town, that kid would be teased to death.
    Luann:How many more wacky situations can we watch her go through this week before her parents get home? and will it all somehow teach her a lesson after all is said and done?
    FBoW: after reading other comments about this strip, I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who recognizes how horrendously predictable it has become

    Then there’s the last panel in yesterday’s (8/8/06) RMMD, in which Rex is staring straight at the reader with a look that could chill Death itself. It reminds me of something from Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight” series. I realize Troy/Adam has been a royal pain, distracting ol’ Rex from his golf course and all, but The Glare seems a bit excessive.

    It’d make a hell of a screen saver, though. Or blow it up to about 8 feet high and paste it on your bedroom wall. Instant nightmares!

    Wait, little Rover got married?

    I’ve really fallen behind…I haven’t read Gasoline Alley regularly since the mid-80′s, which is when Rover was first introduced.

    We can’t blame this one on Slim. Rover was the abused and neglected 5-year-old son of some evil woman…I think she was also a con artist or something. Anyway, she abandoned Rover when she skipped town and Slim adopted him.

    Also I think he always wore an aviator’s cap with earflaps, but it seems like he finally got rid of it.

    #9 – The way Adams walks the line is both a blessing and a curse. In this case, I consider it more of a curse.

    #14 – Yeah, we’ve got some FBOFW-level appearance similarity here. It’s hard to believe that SF has always been drawn by guys, given both the focus on Sally and the portrayal of men.

    #18, 19 – I’m of two minds on it. On one hand (mind?), I rarely like fart jokes anymore. On the other hand, what other syndicated comic strip has deigned to portray a fart? That’s what struck me many years ago with the first “Zits” fart joke, which was halfway clever to boot.

    I read some of the earliest “Gasoline Alley” strips in a collection of old comics and thought they were some of the best of the first half of the 20th century. It’s sad when comics fall so far.

    And yeah, I still have reason to read MW every day now.

    Phantom: “I’ll just survive the crash somehow.” Yah, you superhero types usually do.
    Bugs Bunny had a routine where he would be falling in some airplane or house or whatever and step out at the last second, leaving the airplane or house or whatever to crash, but relative to Bugs, it was merely one horizontal step. Problem solved.

    Mallard: Would you be down with it if the Valdectorian of my high school started ranting on politics? He was a Jewish atheist (if a Valdectorian couldn’t spot the inherent contradiction, then neither could I). In retrospect, since I graduated in 1984, we should have cut the mike at any George Orwell reference. We would have been out of there in two minutes.

    Spidey: You save your wife, only to leave her perched precariously on some random ledge 30 stories up? Couldn’t be bothered to make it to either the roof or the ground? Not the brightest star in the superhero sky, are ya?

    Dick Tracy: Maybe I haven’t followed it every day, but this is what I see: Al Kinda pistol whips only one security guard to gain entrance to a completely deserted Capital Rotunda. Deserted, except for a bomb smuggling terrorist, that is, who gained entrance with a bomb without explanation. I figure that if you can smuggle bombs that easily into the Capital Building, then you can also deposit the bomb on your own. That would make Al Kinda’s role quite useless, wouldn’t it?

    And, as far as Al bein a “loser”, I’d say that evading detection thus far has been a mastery of skill, considering he was in an FBI motorcade and a detective was in his back seat. Twice now, he has bested Dick (Tracy – not Cheney) in their encounters. He even managed to swindle his own terrorist friend by getting the bomb without having to hand over the money. “Loser”? Not on your life.

    That being said, I’m willing to bet all the money in Al Kinda’s briefcase that his way down from the Capital Dome will be high velocity with sudden deceleration.

    RMMD: “A Dr. Morgan is on the line for you. He’s got information about the murder.”
    “Why didn’t you tell me?!?”
    “I just did, you f*cking coffee chugging imbecile!”

    Zits: I usually don’t like fart jokes, but a quick and subtle reference like that is great. I just imagine, with Jeremy’s intense parent hatred, the extreme dread that a teen must hold when trapped in the car for hours with the two old ones. Then, add noxious fumes to the mix. Even without having to smell it, that’s just an idiot thing to say, but I’m sure real world people do.

    Are the Foobs in some rerun week? I remember them having a similar discussion a few months ago. They’re wearing coats, too. I know that summer evenings in Canada might make it a little chilly, but I think they were talking about buying old man Gezelter’s house – um… wait, wrong strip.

    I’m having deja vu all over again. Any faithful Foob readers know if it is a repeat or just a similar conversation?

    Also – April is only in her early teens. It will be about 5 years before she moves out. That’s a long time to either hang on to a second mortgage, live in a house that’s too small, or hope that it stays on the market.

And by “sheriff” I mean “similarly preppy, blandly attractive, closeted gay sheriff.” Any second now Ted will feel the need to start tinkering with his car in the driveway so he can check out this new snack-meat in his rearview mirror.

    The thing to remember about Mary Worth is that her platitudinous opinions are infallible. She told Toby in no uncertain terms that the stories about Aldo Kelrast were gossip and half-truths. Therefore, although Aldo is a little off and a bit obsessive compulsive, it will turn out that he is harmless. It may take awhile to play out but that will be the eventual conclusion of this episode. As for that weird purple necklace on Mary Worth’s neck today, could it be any butt uglier?

    #34 – I thought it was the other way around. Yes, there is some definition of “idiot” being someone with an IQ below – I don’t know – 25 maybe. But for practical purposes, “idiot” means “stupid”, and not “severely retarded”. “Mildly retarded” might be offensive to the “educationally challenged” and Down’s syndrome people.

    I’ll go to hell for saying this, but we can make fun of the true idiots, because they won’t get the joke. But they may take offense to being compared with a consultant.

    Penultimate means “second to last.” I came to know this thanks to a jackass from whom I took a course in Fall, 2004. I always thought that the word meant the top; I was wrong. The instructor knocked the total five points for grammar, punctuation, etcetera off of my score on a project. I ended up missing an A for the semester by two points out of 300 with a 89.333%. He wouldn’t budge.

    In the deep recesses of my heart, I plot my revenge (Ooooh! How Aldo of me!).
