Fred Gambini says Downtown Abbey doesn't make any sense.

London - The majority of married women across the world who are strangely addicted to that show Downtown Abbey, about the old timey rich British people, continue to try to convince their husbands that the show is really called Downton Abbey.

Fred Gambini, who lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife Sheri, said "What the hell is a downton? Sheri keeps telling me that stupid show is called Downton Abbey. It don't make any sense... Downton. I mean, what is that? My best bud Frankie thinks the show is called 'Doubtin' Abbey about this broad who don't believe anything anyone says."

Said Gambini's friend Frankie Carlucci, "Yeah, I think it's called Doubtin' Abbey. Have you ever watched it? All it is is these snooty Brits arguing about nothing, but they never yell or slam doors or even make a mean face. But there's always some broad who doesn't believe what someone else on the show said. She doubts it's true and you know her name is Abbey cause that's what the show is called, Doubtin' Abbey."

Polls show that while married women rarely miss an episode, most husbands have seen approximately five minutes of each season. (Not five minutes per episode; five minutes per season.)

Said Gambini, "Sheri tapes that damn show and watches it while I ain't around 'cause she says she don't like it when I'm standing around with a beer in my hand saying how stupid it is. I don't get it. Why is some foreign show even on American TV? Like that stupid wedding with some prince and that tall chick. Who gives a rip? Who has a prince anymore? I don't get it."
