- A fat elderly citizen, solidly seated, is beset by two pretty young women who offer him fruit. His wife (left) says "You must have some apricots my love." The woman on his right adds, "Just taste these grapes brother in law you never eat finer." He shouts up with angry suspicion to the latter, "Won't eat anything more I tell you. I shall be choaked. Got an eye to the estate I suppose."
