It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a fan girl in possesion of a love for Jane Austen and a silly domain name, must be in want of a website where she can GEEK THE F*CK OUT.
Welcome, Austenites, to Austensauce.
The great literary resource Urban Dictionary defines the phrase “Awesome sause” as:
a beautifully assonant phrase which can and should be used on any occasion where joy and elation are expressed.
origin of ‘awesome sauce’ is probably from Strong Bad, although in that case he refers to a cleaning product with the trade name of Awesome Sauce. ‘awesome sauce’ has been adapted for use both as an exclamation or reserved sign of approval.
Whenever I am immersed in Austen’s world, it is DEFINITELY an occassion where joy and elation are expressed, so I just schmushed it together and covered it in… AUSTENSAUCE!
