What's A Krumwurstner?

According to this handy German language guide made by Dr. Seuss sometime around 1929, a "krumwurstner" is "one who drinks beer through a straw." This cartoon is one of a series of "Life's Little Educational Charts" cartoons drawn by Seuss long before Horton hatched that egg.
