There’s so much to sigh … sorry … say. British Country Life magazine has just released its 39 Steps to being a Lady in 2015. Let’s just say not one of the steps includes reading anything by Caitlin Moran or knowing how to troubleshoot your Mac.
Watch the ‘Little Britain’ men be ladylike in this video below. Post continues after video.
The preamble from the “girls in pearls” magazine does say the list is “part serious, part tongue-in-cheek” but then adds: “Generosity and graciousness are more important than fine feathers and a lady can come from any walk of life – but there’s one key difference: a capable lady knows when to let her gentleman take charge (or let him think so).”
Here are a few of our favourites:
Can paunch a rabbit, pluck a pheasant and gut a fish, but allows men the privilege.
Firstly, we thought that "paunch" was that part above the belt on Uncle Bob's front. And what's the point of knowing how to do paunching if you're going to give men the "privilege"? They can go paunch themselves.
Can imitate Piglet and Pooh voices for a bedtime story.
Oh, how cutey-wutey. Or maybe just weird.
Excels at making love, lasagne and long gin and tonics.
What if you just excel at Excel?
