|~ Schon die guten alten Deutschen ~|
|Looks like youth can outdo their elders in drinking as well as in some other things as proclaimed on this relief pitcher only marked "1621" ca. early 1900's.|
Schon die guten alten Deutschen
tranken manchen Humpen leer,
doch die lieben jungen Deutschen
trinken noch bedeutend mehr.
While the good old Germans
drank many steins empty,
the dear young Germans
drink still notably more.
