It started when I was I was asked by the incomparable Lazaraspaste what I thought the difference between a fop and a dandy was, apart from period. Though I gave (eventually) a serious answer, and the conversation that ensued was an all-time Twitter classic, inside my seemingly academic brain all I could think was: "Fop vs. Dandies: Best Action Movie Franchise EVER."
|"Give me the name of your tailor,|
and prepare to die."
The sequel in the franchise: "Fop vs. Dandies Redux: Wrath of the Popinjays."
FvD 3: The Beaux' Strategem (starring Matt Damon)
FvD 4: The Rake's Regress
It's a hit in the making, I tell you.
I read reports that there's an orange glow over Hwy 102, and that Haligonians have been calling in UFO sightings after seeing a "big ball floating over Beaverbank." I think chances are good that these are the lingering effects of the Northern Lights, but one thing's for sure. When D and I write the first in our series of Nova Scotian neo-noir mysteries, it will be called Big Balls in Beaverbank.
Or maybe an atmospheric television show....
