Thrilling Heroics

by on June 22, 2014

“Lady Blackacre? We’ve got no servers for your afternoon tea.”

“Quickly, Mrs. Sparrow! The Signal!”

“What? Those lightbulbs scattered on the roof?”

“Exactly! We have a social crisis! This is a job for… Superfootman!”

“Oh dear.”

And so, the tea was saved.

  1. It’s all about the tea! Haha. Enjoyed this – very witty!

  2. Ha Ha. Very funny. Loved it!

  3. By God, we simply must have tea! HA HA HA. This was fun…really enjoyed it. ♥

    Where is Cinderella when you need her?

    Such fun! I liked it very much.

  5. Hahahaha: blackacre. I had to pause when I saw that word to investigate. I didn’t go far to find the confirmation I was looking for, “law school adventures.” That word pegs you as one of my own!

    • Indeed; Blackacre’s kind of like a secret handshake for us legal types. I always wanted to use it as a character name, or a place name. 🙂

      • One enterprising law school classmate of mine had some t-shirts printed up that read: Property of Blackacre and sold them to us for a nifty profit!

  6. First one to make me smile this round. Well done 🙂

  7. Totally cute! 🙂

    Good to know the secret handshake. Also good to know that there is a Superfootman in the world. Nicely done.

  9. Bwahahaha 😀 Super footman indeed! A Victorian superhero who serves by day and er.. by night too 😉

    • Leaping tall chamber pots in a single bound! Faster than a speeding scullery maid! Is it a bird? Is it a steam engine? No! It’s….Superfootman!

    I giggled into my chai. This was awesome!

  11. Pitch this to Julian Fellowes quick! It will be Downtown Abbey’s supercharged spin-off!

    • Coincidentally, it was actually inspired by an orchestra performance I recently attended, where the orchestra performed the Downton Abbey theme, and then followed with music from “Man of Steel.” 😀

  12. I had a prof who insisted on replacing every instance of “Blackacre” with “The Death Star….”
