Humor in Tourist Prices

Humor in Tourist Prices for Drinks by Mark Twain is adapted from his book A Tramp Abroad [1880]:

We bought a bottle or so of beer here;

at any rate they called it beer,

but I knew by the price

that it was dissolved jewelry,

and I perceived by the taste

that dissolved jewelry is not good stuff to drink.
