PI’CKLEHERRING. n.s. [pickle and herring.] A jack-pudding;
a merry andrew; a zany; a buffoon.
Another branch of pretenders to this art, without horse or
pickleherring, lie snug in a garret.  Spectator, No 572.
The pickleherring found the way to shake him, for upon
his whistling a country jig, this unlucky wag danced to it
with such a variety of grimaces, that the countryman could
not forbear smiling, and lost the prize. Addis. Spect.
