College pranks. Two portly, and highly respectable Fellows of the University, proceeding along their quadrangle, are assailed with a rough practical joke by a party of unruly young undergraduates ; a rope is being suddenly lifted up with a hearty good-will by a riotous mob at either end, and the astonished 'dons' are tripped up and turned over like turtles on a memorial-stone ' Here lies the body of Bishop Bleareycs! Squibs, squirts, and whips, in the hands of these disorderly students, are further contributing to the annoyance of the capsized magnates. Artist: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827. Date: January 18, 1811. Sourced from Digital Commonwealth website.
