Taming of the Shrew, [4.3.86-92]. Petruchio. “Thy gown? What, ay. Come, tailor, let us see ‘t./ o mercy, God! What masquing stuff is here?/ What’s this, a sleeve? ‘Tis like a demi-cannon./ What, up and down carv’d like an apple-tart?/ Here’s snip and nip and cut and slish and slash,/ Like to a censer in a barber’s shop./ Why, what a’ devil’s name, tailor, call’st thou this?”
