Humor of Favorite Phrase in German

Humor of Favorite Phrase in German by Mark Twain is adapted from his book A Tramp Abroad [1880]:

I have heard of an American student who was asked how he was getting along with his German,

and who answered promptly: "I am not getting along at all.

I have worked at it hard for three level months,

and all I have got to show for it is one solitary German phrase—

'ZWEI GLAS'" (two glasses of beer).

He paused for a moment, reflectively;

then added with feeling:

"But I've got that SOLID!"
