You may have noticed we haven't posted any of the hundreds of "Shit ___ says" videos that have sprung up in the wake of the "Shit Girls Say" video that blew up a few weeks back. That's because they're increasingly terrible and one-note, and we don't want to contribute to prolonging a meme that should have run its course two weeks ago… except in this one case. The only person capable of making us break this embargo: Downton Abbey's the Dowager Countess of Granthem, played by Maggie Smith, who is always ready with a withering quip, a raised eyebrow, and an exasperated sniff. Oh, and a bell. Dowager Countesses be ringing bells, y'all!
