It occurred to me after my post on Mr. Darcy kitsch that not everyone may be familiar with the phenomenon of The Wet Shirt. Though...I'm not sure how this could be. Isn't this something they teach in schools worldwide?
In my effort to educate the masses I am including clips of The Wet Shirt from the classic Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice as well as its parody from Lost in Austen (which appears at the bottom of the post).
I particularly love the response to The Wet Shirt in the latter scene:
'I'm having a bit of a strange postmodern moment here.'
'Is that agreeable?'
'Oh, yes, yes.'
I hope you find it agreeable as well!
P.S. Do you know, I've actually visited the estate that stars as Pemberley in Lost in Austen. I'll have to share more about that soon.
