A large mace-like weapon used by street gangs in small town America in the Fifties and early Sixties. The battle apple works most efficiently when buffed up to a fine shine with a shammy cloth and a dab of saddle oil.

Referenced in the song "Josie" by Steely Dan.
"Yo, Lotsy, get the battle apple out of the screen cellar and meet us at 7th and Morlot at 6:30 - it's about time we ruin these clowns."

"Splanched" is a portmanteau word combining "spent" and "blanched". To say that someone is "splanched out" is to say he looks like he's been through the ringer; that he's pale, drawn, slightly unwell; like he's just undergone a draining personal ordeal; like he's just seen a ghost.
"Wow, have you seen Calvin? He just got back from Japan where he was searching the bins for old vinyl copies of Libby Titus' second album and he looks totally splanched out.
