JACK Pudding. n.s.


JACK Pudding. n.s. [jack and pudding.] A zani; a merry
Every jack pudding will be ridiculing palpable weaknesses
which they ought to cover. L’Estrange.
A buffoon is called by every nation by the name of the dish
they like best: in French jean pottage, and in English jack
pudding. Guardian.
Jack pudding, in his party-colour’d jacket,
Tosses the glove, and jokes at ev’ry packet. Gay.
