Rocky McRochester V. Mr Darcy: A Celebrity Death Match For The Ages



Guess what I'm reading? Pride and Prejudice! Yes, I have finally decided to see what all the fuss is about. So far, I'm at 25% on my Kindle, and I must admit, although I am enjoying this book, I liked Jane Eyre better at this point along. Also, Rocky McRochester was a much more alluring character at the beginning of JE....dark, brooding, calculating. Mr. Darcy seems sort of like a ding-a-ling. But I am reserving judgment since various P and P supporters assure me that Mr. D steps it up by the end of the book.

I'm picturing Mr D and Rocky in an animated version of Celebrity Death Match. Dressed in period garb, with their heroines cheering in the stands. Who will win? Who will suffer a crushing blunt-head trauma? Who will lose a limb before the fight is over? I don't know, but right now I'm cheering for Rocky.

Looking forward to finishing this tasty morsel,
Penelope

I'm sorry, there's no comparison. Rocky is a man's man and Mr. Darcy is a poopy head.
Rocky would kick his butt even blind and one-handed.

Hee hee....OK, one for team Rocky McRochester!

Initially I'd go with Darcy. Underneath his cold manner, there's a fighter waiting to be unleashed.

But then Rocky is no gentlemen and would most likely kick Darcy in the package and stomp on his head.

Rochester would win, hands down.

Ha! I agree....Rochester would totally fight dirty!
