Renarder (French)

.

To vomit, especially after too freely indulging in intoxicating drinks. Our word fox means also to be tipsy.

“Il luy visite la machoire,

Quand lʹautre luy renarde aux yeux.

Le baume quʹils venoient de boire

Pour se le rendre a qui mieux mieux.”


Sicur de St. Amant: Chambre de Desbauche.
