    I guess I don’t text enough, since I have very little idea what this was all about!

    “A bee! A bee! I see a bee in the sea!”
    “Yes! I see the bee too”… etc etc.
    Read it aloud, it might make more sense.

    Thanks for the translation. My formal education didn’t include text talk. I can neither read nor write it.

    It’s not text speak, It’s a very old play on words.

    A few of them took a while but I finally figured out what was being said. The last one I deduced was panel 4, “R-E! R-E!”

    From a famous Bar & Grille on Talbot Steet in Ocean City, MD called M.R. Ducks:

    M.R. DUCKS.
    M.R. NOT.
    O.S.A.R.!
    C.M. WANGS.
    L.I.B.
    M.R. DUCKS

    I have a sweatshirt with the saying on the back and a small duck insignia on the front. That place is pretty cool with great food and a great gift shop.

    Have a look inside for more fun with letters!

    2B or not 2B, that is the question. Mr. B is no more. He is not 2 B.
