To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine… and those who don’t and are always seen with a bottle of water in their hand.
As Ben Franklin said:
- In wine there is wisdom,
- In beer there is freedom,
- In water there is bacteria.
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) – bacteria found in feces.
In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.
- Water = Poop,
- Wine = Health
Therefore we conclude: it’s better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of sh**…
[But remember, drink responsibly—gotta say that!]
PS. And wasn’t it W C Fields who said “Don’t drink the water, fish have sex in it” (except that he used the F*** word)?
