Started my Sunday morning with a forwarded email message. I don't like forwarded messages, and I rarely read them. But, in this case, the sender was someone who rarely does that, and he personalized the subject line (in a very flattering way, no less), so I bit.
Here's the message...
"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 and beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering or fermenting.
Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health
Therefore, it is 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.
