Against a noisy and gluttonous fellow

Emblema 94.

Voce boat torva, praelargo est gutture, rostrum
Instar habet nasi, multiforisque tubae.
Deformem rabulam, addictum ventrique gulaeque
Signabit, volucer cum Truo pictus erit.

It screams with a harsh cry, it has an enormous throat, a beak like a spout or a many-holed trumpet. The pelican bird, when painted, will indicate an ugly ranter, enslaved to lust and belly.
