A rather wobbly and rather portly gentleman on the ice is aided (propped-up) by a young lad. The card is accompanied by a quote from King John, a history play by William Shakespeare, which dramatises the reign of John, King of England (ruled 11991216): 'And he that stands upon a slippery place makes nice of no vile hold to stay him up'.
