“Rechter Hand, linker Hand, beides vertauscht;
Strasse, ich merk es wohl, du bist berauscht.”

(To the right, to the left, both are mixed up;
street, I am well aware of it, you are drunk.)

Central image is taken from an illustration by Heinrich Schlitt (1849-1923), part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II.
