"One has got all the goodness, and the other all the appearance of it."


Well, perhaps not quite. 🙂 Alert Janeites Diane and Melissa each sent us a link to a post at Risky Regencies in which Cara King rewrites The Dark Knight, Austen style.

“You are just what a young man should not be,” said Batman, “nonsensical, bad-humoured, lively; and I never saw such intemperate manners!–so much ease, with such perfect bad breeding!”

“I am also handsome,” replied the Joker, “which a young villain ought likewise to be, if he possibly can. My character is thereby complete.”

Now THIS is clever and funny, unlike…well, other things. Go read it!
