Don't Be an Ape-Leader

because according to the Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, a dictionary of scandalous terms published in 1811, that is an old maid whose "punishment after death, for neglecting increase and multiply, will be, it is said, leading apes in hell." I can see the logic behind the 'apple-dumpling shop' (a woman's breasts) wherein might be found an 'arbor vitae' (look it up). Stay away from brandy that's been 'baptized' (cut with water) and 'bats' (a low whore: so called from moving out like bats in the dusk of the evening).
