Ok, I have a confession to make. I don’t watch Downton Abbey. It’s not that I don’t want to, but between The Bachelor (don’t hate), Vampire Diaries, Breaking Bad and Once Upon a Time, my capacity for show-watching has become limited. But someday I fully intend to watch it and enjoy it.

Still, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity like this. So please, fandom, forgive me for taking something of yours and making a punchline out of it. Someday I will join your ranks and then won’t feel so guilty about it.

    As soon as someone tells me that there is a robot or an alien in Downton Abbey, I will totally watch it, but in the meantime, I’ll stick to Dr. Who and Teen Wolf.

    • pins&needles

      Jodee, there are robots in Downton Abbey! ( Now you’ll have to watch it to see and you’ll be hooked on it before you discover that I’m lying! Mwah ha ha!)

      • pins&needles

        Also, Jodee, you know me as zoomom over on CW. It’s nice to see you here!

    • Amanda


      • Jodee Rose

        Yes, you are right, clearly. My brain has the fuzzies sometimes.

    • blondemome

      I am thinking the same thing except add zombies to that list.

      • Jodee Rose

        Yes, I was going to add that but I didn’t feel like going back and fixing things, because that takes effort and stuff. I would also watch it if there were time travel in it.

  • Emily1022

    Yay for Vampire Diaries and Breaking Bad! Oh and yay for vulgarity, can’t fuckin forget that!

  • Alexandra Killian

    I kind of have to call bullshit, at least in part. Breaking Bad is in the longest-ever mid-season break known to mankind, so claiming that show in your list of time-consuming t.v. watching doesn’t fly right now.

    • Pintester

      Except that I’m watching it on Netflix, so…

      • Alexandra Killian

        My bad. You may proceed with my blessing.

    Sonja, I attribute to you the fact that the f-bomb has been begun to pepper my internal monologue. I don’t know how long I can keep it in my head, it is bound to come leaking out of my mouth at some inopportune time. I’ll let you know when it happens, I’m sure it will be fun!

    • pins&needles

      Yeah, so it happened sooner than I expected. I went to get my masking tape for something this morning and someone had used it and not put it away, again. And I am trying to drink less coffee. And I’m PMSing. And I exploded on my poor husband. “I went to use the f***ing tape and someone f***ing used it and didn’t f***ing put it f***ing back!” And that’s when I realized that my kids were not still asleep.

  • Gina Lamm

    I’m sincerely sorry for this…


    *slinks away*

  • Jill Hansen

    Fuck yeah! And high five for The Vampire Diaries!

  • Kara

    Eh. Vulgarity with purpose is funny. Vulgarity for the sake of being vulgar is … well …vulgar. Some people don’t know the difference. And when they don’t, it’s not funny, just pathetic.

  • Katherine Horejsi

    And that’s why Shirley MacLaine has been cast in this series…drop one of the fairy tale shows and head over to Downton. You won’t regret it. Well you might, but fuck if that ain’t funny anyway. See what I did there?

  • Kasie Strickland

    TiVO dude. Look into it. I also watch the Vampire Diaries- but I have issues with it. If I was a vampire, I sure as hell wouldn’t hang around Virginia dealing with high school drama bullshit. I’d be out somewhere cool, eating people.

  • Emily

    I can’t get into the bachelor. Hotties don’t date girls who list their occupation as “jumbotron operator”

  • Lizzie

    Ok… have to add House of Lies to your watch list. new season is coming up in a few days. SO FUNNY….you would love it!!!

  • mominhiding,lol!

    I have a filthy mind, too, because I saw this and said the same thing as Gina, “She said Butt Fuck!!!!!”

  • Abby Gabs

    The Dowager Countess of Grantham just snarted.


  • Janessa Todd

    I believe the original image came from the official Downton Abbey Facebook. Seriously, you should check the show out. But if/when you do, start at the beginning, don’t just jump in randomly.

  • Lynette

    THIS is why I love you.

  • atouchofyou

    Is it weird if I tell you I love you? Because I think I love you now.

  • Heather

    This just made my life complete. I think we should be friends. Finally, I can say FUCK without offending anybody.
