Cast of ‘Downton Abbey’ Realizes Pun Potential, Takes Subway Downtown

Downton Abbey

Looks like the cast of Downton Abbey (or at least Rob James-Collier, Hugh Bonneville, Sophie McShera, Joanne Froggatt, and Brendan Coyle) finally realized why Americans are so confused by the name of their show. While in New York City, the adorable Brits covered up the “w” on a Downtown subway sign in a moment of divine pundom. Bonneville, who apparently knows how to use the Internet despite spending most of his time in the early 20th century, tweeted the shot. Oh my tea and crumpets, they are best mates!

PS: They totally stole my joke/Halloween costume.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
