Foppish-looking man with rifle stands facing a man seated under a tree; second man also holds rifle, but is dressed more simply. He says to the first man: "For a whole month we've been hunting together, and I've never seen you fire your rifle!" The fop replies, "Huh! It's a 4000-franc weapon . It would create a great deal of damage if I used it!" (Virginia K. Anderson 12/10/93)
