Strepsiades: An elderly farmer who is in debt. He blames his son for this because his son is horse mad, lazy, and unconcerned with the costs of his passion. Strepsiades wishes to avoid his creditors - he wants to deceive them into thinking they are owed no money. He goes to Socrates to learn how to "speak out of both sides of his mouth" so as to confound his creditors. He can't quite learn how, so he send his son instead.
