It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good riding crop must be in want of a pair of bare buttocks to thrash. At least that is how it seemed to Elizabeth Bennet. -50 Shades of Mr. Darcy: A Parody by William Codpiece Thwackery
A hilarious parody of an erotic bestseller and a romantic classic—those wanting a little naughtiness in their lives should prepare themselves for Mr. Darcy's Blue Broom-Cupboard of Seriously Kinky Sh*t
Lizzy Steele had been brought up to be a proper lady with perfect manners, skilled in conversation, and well respected in the community. But when Mr. Elliot Bingley comes to court Lizzy's sister, she is given the opportunity to learn a somewhat different skill set upon her introduction to his friend, a Mr. Christian Darcy. It only takes one chance meeting with this tall, dark stranger for Lizzy to be lured into Darcy's secret world of lascivious practices and lusty urges. Drawn like a moth to his flame, Lizzy is the mistress of her own undoing, for Darcy has made no protestations of love; indeed, his intentions were made plain from the outset. But even the most innocent and well brought-up of young ladies have urges, and as Lizzy learns that a riding crop isn't just used for going for a canter on her pony, a whole new world is revealed to her—shaded black and leather-clad.

Heaven and earth, are the shades of Pemberley to be polluted by 50 Shades?
Indeed, it seems so and I have to admit that I was a bit (okay I was a lot) disturbed by this.
One never knows what they will find while searching the internet and today I found something that I am not likely to forget. I discovered the existence of 50 Shades of Mr. Darcy: A Parody by William Codpiece Thwackery.
I have to say this is one P&P adaptation I am not rushing out to buy. While I have read—and enjoyed—several steamy versions of P&P, I have to say that I draw the line at kinky. It is just not for me. The story of Darcy and Elizabeth is supposed to be a sweet love story that does not involve blue broom cupboard where kinky things happen with riding crops.
