VanityFair.com teamed up with Dallas-based comic artist Chad Thomas to create a hilarious set of Downton Abbey trading cards. Fans of the show will love these hilarious and witty (not to mention well-designed) trading cards that poke fun at some of the show's most lovable and hated characters.

Edith, the "less fair" Dowager sister, is pictured posing with "Any takers" as a man attempts to sneak away into the distance, while Maggie Smith's Dowager Countess is pictured with her most popular (and hilarious) catchphrase, "What is a week-end?"

There are 14 Downton Abbey trading cards in all, including an Anna and Mr. Bates card that says "not the sex scene you were hoping for," as well as O'Brien, Thomas, Matthew, Mary ("Turkish delight") and Lord Grantham ("creepy Crawley"). Stats for British Drama Pictorials Trending: Older & Warm
