To be utterly fair, those chocolate bars have been around since I was a kid (so about 30 years at least), and in the UK ‘Drifter’ doesn’t have the same connotation it has in the US.

And yeah, the Yorkie is typically marketed to the big manly men (lorry drivers and builders for example).

Mr. Bird you are truly one of the treasures of this generation. Or the last. Some generation anyway…

Also, “Why I Should Write New Wooster & Jeeves” should be a thing some month…

Ladies and gentlemen, the heir to P.G. Wodehouse.

That was brilliant. And tempting. And delicious.

Someone please force Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie to perform this script. Please. My brain is stuck forcing thier character voices into my memory as I read this.

‘Course, I doubt that Jeeves & Wooster would approve of Nestle’s other ventures…Jeeves would probably disapprove of their jettisoning the classic cylinder-shaped Smarties tube in favour of the ugly hexagonal one, and I don’t suppose either of them would be particularly enthused with the company’s line of Third-World-Infant-Killing-Milk-Substitute.

At the very least, Aunt Agatha would disapprove.

I am greatly pleased by this, sir.Although it sets the mind to wondering on variants, such as “What if Blackadder were a door-to-door seller of “Adult Novelty Items”?

“I can already hear Aunt Agatha lecturing me about how I murdered a generation of English canines.”

Awesome. How the hell do you think of this stuff?

True fact: to get a license from the Internet Police to write a blog containing comic book content, you must love Wodehouse and be prepared to write pastiche at the drop of a hat.

“What if Blackadder were a door-to-door seller of “Adult Novelty Items”?

Obviously, it would involve the sale of particular items shaped very much like a turnip.

I guess I’m too ignorant to recognise most of the jokes here. I only know American candy.

I suppose chocolatier is a much better career option for Bertie than say… doctor. Every time I see an ad for House I always fear for his patients. I expect Jeeves has to come in at the end of every episode and perform emergency surgery to fix his mistakes.

I dunno, Mary, I didn’t know any of the chocolates were real chocolates, and I still laughed. I must be too simple not to know how simple I am!
