jane austen snapped
You don’t have to misquote Austen to get those kind of jokes:
“Certainly, my home at my uncle’s brought me acquainted with a circle of admirals. Of Rears and Vices I saw enough. Now do not be suspecting me of a pun, I entreat.”
Mansfield Park has its flaws, but also virtues. Austen was pretty savage, deep down.
