Mrs. Andrews Takes a….

Longtime producer Jen “Flash” Andrews was kind enough to share one of her deepest Shame-ber items with all of us:

I enjoy the fake sequel to Pride and Prejudice.

It’s called Mr. Darcy Takes A Wife and it basically picks up on the night of Darcy and Elizabeth’s wedding. It’s got tons of sex and romance and banter…and I feel super guilty about it, but I love it! One of the Bronte sisters once said (very snarkily) “All of Jane Austen’s books end with a wedding because she doesn’t know what comes next”. Well, if you feel like you need more Darcy lovin’, this book’s for you. But don’t let anyone see it or you will be mocked. You must hide it, like I do, behind my copy of Stephen Colbert’s I Am America (And So Can You).

I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of Pride and Prejudice, but I think I could be a fan of the sequel. Check out the cover:


Oooh la la!! Oh, and I first read the author’s name as “Linda BEDROLL,” which sounds kind of naughty.

Don’t worry Jen, your secret’s safe with Stephen Colbert and the Tens.
