English term or phrase: ...with wooden teeth, chewing on an otters nose...
"I also like Morris dancing. My friend says he could see me in big skirts with wooden teeth, chewing on an otters nose and possibly sporting the plague..."
Help! Chewing on an otter's nose? As in some sort of "medieval behaviour", eating weird animals? Or is there a saying behind this? I appreciate suggestions...

agree  Claudia Krysztofiak: oder vielleicht einfach "Otternasen kauend". Ich weiß nicht wieviele man davon so auf einmal in den Mund kriegt. ;-)
