Okay, so my ruminations and predictions may not exactly have been up to the level of predicting the movement of subatomic particles, but still, it’s nice to be at least partially right. So Cricket Bro and Professor Sharp are involved in this NFT racket. This should prove very interesting!
However, I’m not sure what is going here, though it looks like Jules Rivera had several skunk drawings left over and decided to bomb them into today’s strip. Otherwise, I’m as perplexed as Sharp is, to tell the truth. It does appear that a photo shoot is in progress. I don’t know if NFTs are actually created this way, but why not!?
Next, what is this moniker, “Lewks”? Cricket Bro is actually Rob Bettancourt, Mark’s childhood nemesis and recent tormenter. But, I suppose anybody can get a nickname, and “Lewks” must be Rob’s. Rob’s “place” looks rather different from the large, white Palm Springs mansion we originally saw. Rob (or Lewks) is rich enough to have two, we must assume.
I bet you are wondering, as I am, whether that pocket protector loaded with pens in Sharp’s pocket is real or just a prop, like the fake ties boys used to have to wear during photo day at school.
WHat’s with all the animals? IS that a cow? I hope that skunk is descented.
Good question. Not sure why, either. NFTs can be anything digital (at this point). Maybe “Lewks” has a thing for animals. He is, after all, Cricket Bro. But I don’t see any crickets there. I’m guessing that Professor Bee isn’t all that happy at the menagerie. What I also don’t get is what “media” is Lewks referring to?
Pardon the delayed reply; I’ve been super busy recently. Bee Sharp is making a paused-beat joke by combining “happy to serve” and “serve lewks,” the latter of which is a stylized spelling of the slang term “serve looks.”
“Serving looks, also stylized “serving lewks” often refers to when someone’s makeup, hair, outfit, etc. are on fleek.”
Ah, I appreciate the social terminology update! Grazie mille!
Cellardoor, you don’t have some kind of blog on WordPress, do you? I’ve been getting bot-mails about viewing yours for some reason.
No, I don’t, George. I don’t know what that’s about. I just registered so I could have a moniker to comment with. Are you sure the mails aren’t about viewing my replies?
No, they aren’t. I get them from “users” I don’t even know, asking me to see what they’re doing. Maybe they’re auto-generated. Or phished.
