|~ Auf's trink'n kriagt ma' Schneid ~|
|The Bayrisch (Bavarian dialect) verse is self explanatory on this Jugendstil (youth style = modern art) stein made by J P Thewalt and decorated by Theodor Schmidt, ca early 1900's.|
Auf's trink'n kriagt ma' Schneid
und a' Kraft auf's guate ess'n
und an Humor kriagt a' dazua
kannst d' Sorgen leicht vergess'n.
Upon drinking one creates energy
and a power for good eating
and with humor one can also acquire
the ability to easily forget sorrow.
