Mr. Darcy Hits the Trail

Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley Hit the Trail

A brief summer diversion, told in Internet memes, of our favorite young men seeking coolness and refreshment.

Two vultures, veritable pinks of the Ton, set out to see what adventures London has in store. Note they are wearing their features styled as greatcoats, which makes perfect sense in London in July. Please note secondly that all owls look like this when en dishabille. Accord them their privacy on the trail lest you embarrass them. And please note thirdly, that these are now owls. These are vultures.

Mr. Bingley does not wish to approach too closely. In fact, he wishes to get as far away as fast as he can. This is in keeping with the maxim of his forefathers: If you see a bear, drop your pack and run like hell. All other good advice will evaporate from your mind.

But who is that? Or what is that? What is this strange creature in the form of a woman doing out here in the middle of nowhere?

Shh . . . what is she saying?

Oh, hey there y’all, you’re cute! What brings you out to these woods on a Saturday? Oh, I know. Y’all are looking for some feminine companionship. Well, you know what they say, feminine companionship R ‘Us.

Oh, you like my chair. It has all the bells and whistles, plus a few I haven’t figured out yet.

What’s that you’re saying? Well, that doesn’t sound too neighborly! I’ll defy you to find a nicer, more ladylike lady within–No, hey, wait! I’m going! You don’t have to tell me twice.

She turns, and the little motors on her chair give an undignified shriek as she gains speed. Attached to the back of the chair is a nicely lettered poster with a few balloons. It reads:

If you don’t like the way I drive, then stay off the sidewalk!
