Ye Gilded Boob

Ye Gilded Boob
"Ye Gilded Boob. / You think that you are: just it, / With your monocle [kid gloves] and ten-dollar hat."

A vinegar valentine that pokes fun at pretentious fools. The reference to a "ten-dollar hat" may come from the saying, "He wears a ten-dollar hat on a five-cent head," suggesting that an expensive hat can't make up for a lack of intelligence.

For a similar valentine, see Oh! You Lobster.
