In garrulum & gulosum.

Against a noisy and gluttonous fellow

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.

Contre les babillards & goulus.

LXXXIII.

Qui veut peindre un criard, laid, friand & gourmand,
A voix grosse & maussade au gosier large & grand,
Au bec nas, ou fluste en plusieurs lieux troue,
Qu’il peigne le butor la voix enroue.

Commentaires.

Le Butor, qui s’appelle onocrotale & truo, a le
nez en guise de trompette, le gosier merveilleuse-
ment evas, & la voix tant bramarde, qu’il semble
que ce soit un asne qui raille. Ainsi quelques uns, par
leur maussade glatissment, & par leur importun babil,
meslent le ciel avec la terre, combien que leur langage ne soit
autre chose, qu’un son priv de sens & de raison. Ceux cy
sont tellement addonns la gouillardise, qu’ils n’ont rien
que la langue & le cul: & toutesfois le menu peuple
en fait grand cas.
