The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: The Ladies Of Downton Abbey At A Modern Dance Party!

WHOA! Looking good, ladies! (Or should I say, BIRDS?!) These, of course, are the beautiful and/or homely women of Downton Abbey, depending on their social class. (The pretty ones are the rich ones, and the homely ones work for the rich ones, as is the custom.) It’s weird how Lady Sybil is way prettier when she’s dressed up in her Victorian dresses. Kind of makes you want to build a time machine and go back to the day before the Titanic (3D) sunk, AM I RIGHT FELLAS?! (It’s also not that weird. What is even UP with those pants? What is up with almost all of these outfits? England, explain yourself.) Meanwhile, no Maggie Smith? Shame on this otherwise perfect photoshoot. GIVE ME THE DOWAGER COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM OR GIVE ME DEATH!) What I’m trying to say is that I wish Lady Mary would Lady Mary me, and Lady Edith can still get lost. Doesn’t matter what time period she is in, she is a dud. Lady Sybil, as I mentioned, can go either way. And I don’t date servants. (The important thing to understand here is WHO WOULD GABE DATE?!) Now, caption this photo, blimey, innit! There are more captions to choose from than appropriate suitors for the would-be heirs to Downton if we lived in a modern society where you could split the blasted entail. If only it weren’t for this damned war! EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!

Winner will receive special mention in this week’s Monsters’ Ball. Oh dear. (Click image to enlarge. Via ONTD.)
