In the Canterbury tales isn't there a great deal of this regarding the nun? The sarcasm is hardly subtle, which makes this trope old. Like, really old.

I think you mean the Prioress, and it's kind of ambiguous. It does say she doesn't spill any food, so she's not really a messy eater, but the image in the story is that she stuffs her face with delicacies and doesn't do anything charitable.

IIRC, because she's neat about gorging herself, she'd probably be more like a Villainous Glutton than this
