Main»The Little Lord Fauntleroy School For Albino Hemophiliacs

The Little Lord Fauntleroy School for Albino Hemophiliacs is a made up place that Adam jokes about Drew (and sometimes his kids) having attended.

Little Lord Fauntleroy was the name of a book written in the late 19th century about a young American boy who learns he is in line to become an Earl in England. The term has also become synonymous with someone who acts and/or dresses in an overly aristocratic manner.

Adam uses the term to paint Drew's childhood as very protected, rich, frail, and with no understanding of and isolation from middle and lower class living. Adding 'for Albino Hemophiliacs' only adds to the impression that the school is for the very rich who have never done any physical outdoor labor and are thus pale and weak. Adam is poking fun at the fact that Drew was raised in a well-to-do family, attended good schools his whole life, and did not share Adam's less-than-extravagant childhood.

Adam will also describe Drew as dressing up in a Blue Boy outfit and carrying his books with a leather bookstrap. The Blue Boy is the name of a painting done by the English painter Thomas Gainsborough in the 16th century, portraying a boy wearing an expensive blue outfit and standing in a somewhat regal pose.
