Weekend Laugh

I owe much gratitude to a fellow Janeite for this video gem--thank you so much, Sylwia!! If you've ever wondered what it would be like for a guy to try to pick up women using Mr. Darcy's dialogue (I know, I know, it's an Austen-fan-girl thing to do :), then this hilarious YouTube clip is for you...

Enjoy! And have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Oh, that was too funny. No, I mean it--do not watch it at work. Outbursts of laughter without explanation do not go over well.

*I am not a madam.* Words to live by.

Marilyn Brant said...

I KNOW! And the way he approached the bride--loved it!! So glad you enjoyed it, too, Pamela :).

Sandra Ferguson said...

The 'I am not a madam." is one of the those moments I'll never forget. Open mouth and insert foot comes to mind.

I thought it was interesting that they chose Colin Firth's, Mr. Darcy, instead of the more memorable Matthew Macfadyen.

Send me back in time, just send him with me!

LOL- can't wait to share this with my daughter! Thanks for the laugh.

Pamala Knight said...

So funny! And the bit at the end always kills me too, teehee.

Robin said...

OMG - that was hysterical! I loved it. Thanks for the laugh, Marilyn!

(And I'm sorry, but you know I'm a little more partial to Brad.)

Marilyn Brant said...

Sandra~I laughed out loud at that, too :). Didn't know you were a Darcy lover as well!!

Nancy~I hope she enjoys it :).

Pamala~I figured you'd probably already seen it! I can't stop watching it...

Robin~LOL about that Brad Pitt line! And yes, yes...I know where your loyalties lie, my dear!

Maria Geraci said...

I'm glad you liked it so much!

My favourite line is that older lady's "I find you odd".

That was great. The "not a madam" part was hands down the best.
