More Regency Goodies

Here's a Regency cartoon, also from the Tribute to Jane Austen Wall. It's called "Dandies Dressing", but I like to think of it as "If Men Were As Silly As Women".

Sorry about the glares. Here's a transcription of the dialogue:

"Damn it, I really believe I must take off my cravat or I shall never get my trowsers on."

"‘Pon honor, Tom, you are a charming figure! You’ll captivate the girls to a nicety!"

"Do you think so, Charles? I shall look more the thing when I get my other calf on."

"Dear me, this is hardly stiff enough. I wish I had another sheet of Fools cap."

"You’ll find some to spare in my breeches."
