“Downton Abbey” sure has made it – people are making up raps about it, Funny or Die has put together an “Eastbound & Downton” mash-up, there are even Downton the Gathering cards, which are fairly hilarious.

What’s your favorite “Downton Abbey” spin-off project? We think we have to give our vote to “Downton Tabby,” which is as funny as it is completely terrifying.

Looks like Mindy Kaling got her wish. “Downton” returns to the U.S. airwaves in January 2013.
