Last One In The Water Is A Rotten Egg

My brother sent this to me the other day. I remember seeing it printed elsewhere and with Presidents Day soon upon us, I thought it would be appropriate.

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 one liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than one kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli), the bacteria found in feces.

In other words, we are consuming one 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 and/or fermenting.

Remember: Water equals poop, and wine equals health.

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.
