L'estude de Gargantua, selon la discipline de ses precepteurs sophistes. The study of Gargantua, according to the discipline of his schoolmasters the Sophisters. The bells having been returned, the citizens of Paris gratefully offer to take care of his mare as long as he wishes, which Gargantua greatly appreciated, and they sent her to live in the forest of Fontainebleau. After this Gargantua wished to throw himself into his studies with Ponocrates, who told him to behave as normal so as to understand how his previous tutors had made him so stupid and ignorant. He therefore spent his time like this: He got up around 8 or 9 whether it was light out or not, laid around for a while, and combed his hair with his fingers. Then he took a dump, pissed, cleared his throat, burped, farted, yawned, spit, coughed, hiccuped/bled, sneezed, snotted himself, and went to breakfast. Ponocrates remarks that he shouldn't stuff himself just after having gotten out of bed, without exercising a bit. Gargantua replies that he rolled over several times before getting up, isn't that enough? It's what pope Alexander did until the day he died in spite of the envious. He also gives his reasons for drinking at breakfast. After breakfast, he listens to a few masses at church. Then he studies for a while, his eyes on the book but his stomach in the kitchen. After pissing, he sits down to eat and drink.
