On the Menu: A What If...?

If Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice had a restaurant...

NOW HIRING!

Mrs. Long proudly presents her new cafe, "Eat a Little, Talk a Lot."

...

"Why, hello, have I got the dish on... ice cream! Of course. You want to know our flavors. Here are our just desserts:

- Plain Jane Vanilla
- Bing(ley) Cherry
- Collin Daz's Preachy Pompous Peach
- Banana Bennet Bonanza
- Cantaloupe Elope

"But don't forget to take a look at our lunch menu! We serve:

- Longbourne Steaks
- Crow
- Humble Pie (Miss Caroline Bingley's favorite!)

"And our cocktail/cafe menu:

- Bloody Mary
- Fizzy Lizzy
- Mock-Bravado (Mr. Wickham's own invention!)

"Oh, you're admiring my signs?"

Sign #1: DO NOT STEAL. IT IS A CAPITOL OFFENSE!
Sign #2: WANTED: A MAN IN POSSESSION OF A GREAT FORTUNE

"Thank you for stopping in, Mr. Darcy. I hope you come ready to eat! For there is no greater amusement for young people!"

*Mr. Darcy wants a Fizzy Lizzy... and that's all... to go.*

  1. You forgot to put the 'chef's pride' on the menu, known today as the chef's special.

    With all that prejudice about, I'm sure that there would be a lot of signs saying 'NO this that and the other'.
