It's A Good Thing I Like To Drink

This was in an e-mail from a dear friend...

Water and Wine
To my friend who enjoys a glass of wine.. and those who don't.
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 liter 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, whisky or other liquor), because alcohol has to go through a purification
process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Water = Poop, Wine = Health .

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid,
than to drink water and be full of shit.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information:
I'm doing it as a public service

Or, as W.C. Fields said when asked if he wanted a glass of water,
"No, thanks. Fish screw in that stuff."

Not like I needed a reason to drink this year... ;-)

I sent it to everyone in our "Water Club" at school. (We pay for a water cooler. Maybe we can fill it with vodka instead?)
