bilby commented on the word fat, foggie and nastie Abbey-lubber
"Such is the wretched condition of this world, that they shame not (fat, foggie, and nastie Abbey-lubbers) to shew how full-fedde they live in their Cloysters, with cherry cheekes, and smooth shining lookes, gay and gaudy garments, far from the least expression of humility, not walking in the streets like Doves: but high-crested like Cockes, with well cramd gorges."
- Giovanni Boccaccio (translation attributed to John Florio), 'The Decameron'.
