Words Sent From My Mother...

(She enjoys chain letters and this one is a hoot):

To my "Happy Hour" buddies...

To my friends who enjoy 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, 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 sh*t.


There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service.
