~ I glaub mein Krügl hat a Loch ~
This verse is in Bayrisch (Bavarian dialect) and you can see how the two words, "I" and "a" have transitioned and become identical in English and Bavarian. The Jugendstil (youth style = modern art) stein is marked "R. Merkelbach Grenzhausen 2172", ca. early 1900's.
I glaub mein Krügl hat a Loch. I believe my little stein has a hole.
