The Brontë Sisters (a silly historical video by the History Girls)

Friday, July 8, 2011

We can't claim any special connection to these very funny British comedians except that we're all "history girls." As they say on their website: "The History Girls take their version of history and put a wig on it - a sort of Brontë Python." In this sketch, they put their silly-wig on the writing Brontë sisters. We especially like the part about coming up with a really, really good title – a constant challenge to novelists (okay, at least it's a constant challenge to us) though perhaps not with such amusing results. Oh, if only our books had moors in them, too!
