Cut off the merrythought in the line f, g, by passing the knife under it towards the neck.
Oh dear me, there is but a drumstick and a merrythought left.
Cut up the chicken, the wings and breast in slices, the merrythought also, and divide the legs.
Take off the merrythought, the neck-bones, and separate the leg-bones from the legs, and the pinions from the wings.
The wings must be taken off in the line a, b, and the merrythought in the line c, d.
Bless my drumsticks and merrythought, I shant be so cold and hungry, please God, this time to–morrow night.
The breast, wings, and merrythought, are the most esteemed; but the leg has a higher flavour.
I see I am wrong again, the drumstick is in the dish, and the merrythought is in my head, with numerous companions.
Again, all birds that can fly possess a “merrythought,” or furculum; and such is not found in the Pterodactyl.
