Or perhaps he IS a professional model, who has made up the fake name Arthur Zerro to make sure the woman he meets isn't just into him because of his fancy name.
Who'd imagine the internet as a gateway to . . . DAH DUNNNNN . . . Toby Cameron, Crime Fighter!!!-- Scottie McW.
Why is it crazy, Mary? It's obvious that Arthur/Arther is a scammer. Who asks someone they barely know for ten grand? And who is so stupid they give it to someone, sight unseen.EVeryone in this strip is stupid.
I would say NOT using image search is beyond stupid, but I know somebody who bought stock photos for a company web page without checking & used one that had been heavily featured in HIV campaigns.
"Arthur/er" is the world's most incompetent scammer if a bubblehead like Toby Cameron can bust him so easily. I can't wait to see how Mary confronts Estelle with the evidence. Will tea and muffins figure in this? Will an irate Estelle toss Libby in Mary's face and scream, "Take your stupid cat back, you meddling banshee!"
I'm reminded of a Simpson's episode where Bart was writing love letters to Mrs. Krabapple under a pseudonym just to mess with her. When he needed a picture of the paramour, he cut out a picture of the famed hockey player, Gordie Howe. Quote, "Lace up those skates, Gordie. You're going in!"
And when he sees Mrs. Krabapple cry when Gordie doesn't show up Bart says something like, "I can't help but feel partly responsible."
Why should Mary be surprised Estelle has been swindled? Look at how easy it was for Mary to palm off a one-eyed shelter cat! Mary's real concern is that that Estelle may be more cautious the next time Mary needs an easy mark.
Kit-Kat, you hit it right on the head. Toby Cameron is basically the low bar around here — and remember, "around here" includes Wilbur.I still say this storyline will eventually be revealed as "Estelle’s poor judgement caused by toxoplasmosis, acquired from Mary’s cat".
Toxoplasmosis could only improve Estelle.
