CREEPY! I don't even know what's creepiest--Rex lurking like he's here for the babies' souls, the ellipses and exclamation point that make it look like a poster for a 50s drive-in horror flick, or just the general uneasiness that Rex would talk to me about anything involving my lady business.

But then I read it.

And I decided this is the most awesome thing I have ever seen.

Yes, it's a real thing. I told D, there's no way this is from 1980. He reminded me that 1980 was a long time ago, longer than I seem to think it was. I just said that I can't believe something from my lifetime looks like it's from the 60s. He said 1980 is closer to the 60s than it is to today. Now I'm really depressed.

Hmmm, could you explain why you find it awesome? I'm not getting it.

Let's see.... because the government thought the best way to inform pregnant women about "the fetal alcohol syndrome" was via a Rex Morgan comic book? That someone somewhere thought Rex Morgan was second only to Walter Cronkite as the most trusted man in America? That Rex's dialogue was just as pompous then as it is now, and that it reads like it was written by a non-native English language speaker? That he's shouting at me in the last panel about how sacred a place my uterus is? That at some point, this was given in all seriousness to a woman to read, who was to read it in all seriousness? Just for starters.

It's utterly fantastic. I love it.

I have been enlightened. An analogy would be Card Captor Sakura appearing in an one minute short at the end of a episode warning girls about the dangers of unprotected sex.

... Or not.
