Silliness from my mom

October 1, 2007

Water Vs. Wine
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, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember: 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.

    This joke has been sealed with the Corkscrew of Anglican Infallibility.

    I feel much better about that bottle of pinot gris I drank last night. I’m healthy!

    Hmmm…the folks at SFiF, T1:9 and such must be drinkin’ lots of water… 😉

    So this evening it’s back to the Sam Adams I have in the fridge (WRT the Franklin quote, what better beer to represent freedom than one named after him ? 😉
