"just like Friar Tuck"

Friar Tuck is one of Robin Hood's 'Merry Men'. He appears in the Robin Hood play from 1475, which is sometimes called Robin Hood and the Knight or Robin Hood and the Sheriff.

In legend, he was formerly a monk of Fountains Abbey, expelled for his lack of respect for authority. The first time he meets Robin Hood he carries him across a river, winning over his loyalty.
