PostSubject: Master Wybrants   Tue Dec 07, 2010 9:55 am

Lambert's popularity inspired an imitator in "Master Wybrants, Mr. Lambert in miniature", exhibited a short distance away in Sackville Street.[31] A handbill described Wybrants as "Master Wybrants the Modern Hercules, who at the age of 4 Months weighed 39 pounds, measured 2 feet round the Body 15 Inches round the thigh and 8 Inches round the Arm, to be seen at the corner of Sackville Street Piccadilly".[31]
People would travel long distances to see him (on one occasion, a party of 14 travelled to London from Guernsey),[n 5] and many would spend hours speaking with him on animal breeding.[27] A life-sized waxwork of Lambert was displayed in London, where it became extremely popular.[13] Daniel Lambert soon became a popular subject with cartoonists, who often depicted him as John Bull.[31] He mixed well with the upper classes, and on one occasion met King George III.[27] The King's and Lambert's reactions to this meeting are not recorded.[27]
