Oktoberfest Beer Stein


Oktoberfest Mug
ceramic
Purchased at Mt. Rainier Antique,
Thrift and Salvage, July 2003

This mug seems to embody the true spirit of Oktoberfest, unbridled drunkenness. It depicts a man in lederhosen, still clutching his beer stein, being hauled off by a wrecker. The caption on the mug, "Gen' ma hoam, frag' net wie," translated from the the Bavarian, is "Let's go home, don't ask how." Let's admit it -- we Americans may not have the lock on tackiness that we might aspire to.
