: I recently aquired a very old book of english proverbs, & while most are pretty well self explanetary there was one in particular that seemed to defy all attempts to explain it, the book was printed approximately 1908. The proverb is "Apples, eggs & nuts may be eaten after sluts" My mind is still boggeling after that one, the only possible explanation I can think of is that because sluts generally don't charge for their favors so with the money you'd save you could afford these types of food,perhaps. Anybody out there who can cast some light on this I would be most appreciative.

Well, sluts may have meant something different. I am going to take a guess. A slut would be a woman of loose morals and, even more shocking, a woman who wasn't much concerned with housekeeping and cleanliness. But you could chance eating the above foods because they are kind of self contained and less likely to be contaminated. How's that for a guess?
