"Six groups of three persons (wife, husband, and lover) arranged in two rows, their words (not transcribed) etched above their heads.  A pretty young woman walking with an ugly and elderly husband makes an assignation with a military officer.  A shoemaker with a strap interrupts a French barber making love to his wife.  A young woman points to her fat old husband asleep in a chair, saying to a barrister, "Take care or you'll wake him". He says: "Remember my dear Madam how well I pleaded your last cause".  A fashionably dressed doctor holds the pulse of a young woman who sits beside him on a sofa. The husband watches with suspicion.  A handsome young clergyman sits on a sofa with a young woman, their arms round each other's shoulders, eyes closed, while a fat elderly parson gapes at them with horror, saying, "Here's a pretty scandal to the Cloth!!"  Two fat country people embrace under the eyes of the husband who says: "Come come this is carrying the joke a little too far."--British Museum online catalogue.
