To paraphrase W.C. Fields, "I don't drink water, because fish screw in it."    

         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.  
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!
