An illustration to Samuel Butler's 'Hudibras', Part 2, Canto 2. A couple are being paraded back to back on a pony as villagers bang pots and pans, with cuckold's horns, in the form of a stag's head, a ram's head and a cow's head, held aloft. The woman holds a skimmington, a large wooden ladle often used to beat husbands. A 'skimmington ride' (or charivari) was a parade to shame a member of a community. Here it is shown as part of a Horn Fair. This print was first published with the title 'Skimmington-Triumph, Or the Humours of Horn Fair', by Joseph Nutting, c.1720, taking Hogarth's 'Hudibras and the Skimmington' as inspiration. This state has the additional text, ''I'll Wash Your Dishes, I'll Clean Your House' spoken by the male rider and 'Work you Rogue Work' by the woman.

Etching. 260 x 365mm (10¼ x 14½").
John Bull on a spit, being roasted on a spit by government ministers, black-bodied but white-faced, clad in loin cloths. Bull is held in place by two skewers, marked 'Free Trade' and 'Corn Bill, and drips 'Tax' into a bowl lined with bread inscribed 'Sop' and 'Place', 'Pension' or 'Sinecure'. Peel and Wellington baste Bull with ladles, watched by Lyndhurst, Sugden, Scarlett and Eldon. Just arrived, William IV is astonished at the sight and says: 'I must put a stop to this'. It is a satire on the victimisation of the British public by the 'Tax Eaters' of the government. William IV had only been on the throne a month and was much more popular than his predecessor. Pacific interest.
