  • In Rabelais' Gargantua and Pantagruel, Book II:

    Trajan was a fisher of frogs.
    Antoninus, a lackey.
    Commodus, a jet-maker.
    Pertinax, a peeler of walnuts.
    Lucullus, a maker of rattles and hawks'-bells.
    Justinian, a pedlar.
    Hector, a snapsauce scullion.
    Paris was a poor beggar.
    Cambyses, a mule-driver.

    snapsauce: a person who purloins food, steals the last bite when nobody is looking, or crassly licks his fingers while eating.
