Bateman Empty Lunch Makes Managed Menu Miserly Pile Plates Price Reference Removes Restaurant Rotund Satisfied Scotsman Tall Traditionally Waiter Worth Moneys Myth


EDITORS COMMENTS
In this humorous illustration by H. M. Bateman, we are transported back to a historical moment where a rotund and satisfied Scottish man sits at a restaurant table, having truly gotten his money's worth from the set price lunch menu. The picture playfully pokes fun at the myth that Scottish people are traditionally miserly. The scene unfolds as a waiter removes an impressive tower of empty plates from the Scotsman's table, showcasing just how much he has managed to eat. With a mischievous glint in his eye and a contented smile on his face, our protagonist proves that he is not one to shy away from indulgence when it comes to food. This satirical image serves as both entertainment and commentary on cultural stereotypes. It challenges preconceived notions about Scottish frugality by presenting us with an individual who knows how to savor every bite and make the most out of what he pays for. As we delve into history through this print, we can't help but chuckle at the clever way in which Bateman highlights societal misconceptions while also celebrating the joy of good food. So let us raise our glasses (and perhaps another plate) to this Scotsman who certainly had his money's worth!
