Object of the Day, Museum Edition: Punch and Muffins Academy

The British Museum

I would like to attend the "Punch and Muffins Academy," especially if the Punch in question is Mr. Punch.  Here, from between 1820 and 1825, we see a design for a card which features a drawing of Mr. Punch seated on inverted bowl, at a table eating from another bowl.

The work of pen and gray ink was drawn by Edward Hull and is inscribed: 

"Punch and Muffins Academy by NED HULL Poplar Grove, Oval, Kennington."
