"There's nothing simpler than avoiding people you don't like.  Avoiding one's friends...that's the real test."  --Violet Crawley  

From the Masterpiece Downton Abbey website


Can you recognize the Dowager Countess zingers when translated into emoji?



Which ones fit?

  • Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  • Don't be defeatist, dear.  It's very middle class.

  • I wonder if your halo doesn't grow heavy.  It's like wearing a tiara 'round the clock.

  • What is a weekend?

  • Everyone goes down the aisle with half the story hidden.

  • Why does every day involve a fight with an American?

  • Is this an instrument of communication or torture?

  • No one wants to kiss a girl in black.

  • We'll have to take her abroad.  In these moments, you can usually find an Italian who's not too picky.  

  • Vulgarity is no substitute for wit.
