Default Obscene charades from times gone by

In case you thought that hooligans and drunkards were a modern thing...from Restoration England.In 1663 Lord Charles Sedley was arrested after 'climbing onto the roof of a cookshop in Bow Street,delivering a blasphemous sermon and acting out every position of buggery and lust that could be imagined'
He pops up again in 1668 having started a fight in a street and then scarpering with a mate 'naked from the waist down with their barse arses all hanging out'... Typical London Saturday night 😈

Sedley's daughter, Catherine, was also a real character. One of her father's friends described her as "none of the most virtuous, but a wit." Catherine became the mistress of James II, then late in life (her late 30s) married and had two sons. She told them, "If any one calls you the sons of a whore, you must bear it, for you are so; but if they call you bastards, fight till you die, for you are an honest man's sons."

Man, I love that.

She also said she knew not why James had picked her-'it could not be for beauty for l have not any and it could not be for wit for he has not enough to know that l have any'.
She also livened up George l's coronation firstly when on meeting William lll's mistress and Charles Il's mistress announcing 'God!Who would have thought we three whores would meet here?' and then when the Archbishop of Canterbury asked if all present accepted George as King loudly opined 'Does the old fool think with all these soldiers here anyone would say No?'
Meanwhile her father also got himself charged with starting a riot-as recorded by Samuel Pepys-he announced he had for sale a 'powder that would make all the c**ts in town chase after him' and on being asked to elaborate 'he showed them by taking a glass of wine,washing his prick in it and then drinking the King's health from it'. For some strange reason this offended a fair few of His Majesty's loyal subjects in the audience...
