Nicknamed the "poop deck" by some historical hobbyists, this is a replica of a satirical deck of cards dating from 1545 and designed by the German artist Peter Flötner. It used traditional German suits as well as "unter" and uber" figures rather than jacks and queens, and omits aces. 48-card decks were commonly used for trick-taking games such as "Karnoffel" (hernia). The deck was popular with the lower classes, and some naughty or satirical images on this deck reflect the game's lower class origins.  It includes several satirical images such a monk vomiting, scenes of farting, spanking and "excreting". The back are blank as was most common for early playing cards.
