VIDEO! Downton Arby’s: Lady Mary Crawley With A Side Of Curly Fries

This video is both hilarious and tragic. It is hilarious because it is hilarious. It is tragic because it reminds me of that blissful moment in human history when Downton Abbey was still on the air, broadcasting new episodes weekly, providing me with entertainment and joy AND because it reminds me of how much I love Arby’s Beef & Cheddar Sandwiches and Curly Fries but, because I’m a grown-up familiar with how one’s stomach feels about digesting such things (especially when paired with a delightful Jamocha Shake), I can no longer eat them in good conscience.

    But I guess not enough people watch this show. My girlfriend calls it “that dorky British show you watch.” But anyways, I digress, this video is amazing and I’ve watched it many more times than necessary.
