What will Bubbles wear?

A toga
A dress stitched together from space ham (I don't type with my mouth full)
A third option (say it in your post!)
Clothes that are too big to fit in a traditional washing machine so must be laundered in a purple monkey dishwasher
A pair of shorts she borrows from Elliot (as well as his "soft boy" shirt)

I knew someone would say that.

Yes, it is possible that they chant bros, not merely because they are bros in the usual sense of being partying guys at a college fraternity, but also because they are literal brothers, also happen to be fraternal twins, and on top of that, happen to have the surname Bros. And if that isn't enough, their father happens to be the very realtor we saw today, that is theoretically possible Mister Madness, I respect your headcanon. :lol:

They could also be super-fans of the 1980s band Bros, featuring Matt & Luke Goss. Forever wondering when, when, when will they be famous.

Just thought of something on the 10 Rules poster. #10 is probably 'always check the fine print' or 'always check the finer details' and it's probably written in fine print

Ok, now the "ignore Faye" gag makes more sense.   The "font" setup was a bit too obscure for me, since I have no idea what most of those fonts look like except Comic Sans.   Unless Jeph perhaps had a different joke originally planned, and forgot to change the setup at first, when he changed the punchline.

Also, a thought; perhaps they should go dual language on the store sign, English and Binary, as a sort of eye-catcher.

Binary isn't a language any more than denary is. In the context of signage, its more like an alternative alphabet.

More fun that way...
But if you take the position that AIs might not wish to use the latin alphabet, what would they use instead? Binary in 0s and 1s is clearly hopelessly clumsy, and really you'd want something that delivered unicode. Some kind of bar code or QR code system perhaps?

The Robot Hegemony is coming regardless. This is as true in the real world as it is in QC Land.

It seems to me they ought to have some AIs for the grand opening party. Maybe invite Punchbot, Jeremy and Seven. Or even May and Pintsize. Roko too; as a legit business they'll want good relations with the constabulary.

Same problem as binary really, information density (assuming you mean hex as in a display like 0074006800690073000D000A). If you use the standard hex representation to display unicode then each character is represented by 4 characters from a very small subset of the latin alphabet. I think I'd want something better if I were an AI.
