~ Ein wackerer Zecher steckt sich fein ~
 
German women seem to be very tolerant of their men carousing while they stay home and do the house work. Notice the woman encouraging her man to take the house key on this Jugendstil (youth style = modern art) stein with decor designed by Theodor Otto Hahn of Munich, ca. early 1900's. Also see translation: Ein kluger Zecher steckt sich fein
 
Ein wackerer Zecher steckt sich fein
den Schlüssel vom Haus schon Morgens ein.
A thorough drinker pockets his
house key early in the morning.
