Wine and Water

I received this e-mail from a friend, author unknown. If you know me, you will get why it tickles me so much.

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 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:
I'm doing it as a public service.


  1. That is bloody brilliant ! Thanks for sharing.Going to open a bottle of red to toast you my friend.

  2. Okay, you got me with that one. Logic does prevail.

    Even if it's filtered water?
    Yeah, don't answer that.

    To CCC!
    I'll go buy a bottle of darn vodka. My birthday is coming up anyway. And I'll toast you, of course.
    Maybe sooner, because I'll HAVE to toast a new Cria:)
    Once a year, whether I need it or not.

    hugs and scritches to that big old Buck, and wiggle Spot's ears for me:)

  3. You bet GL, Buck loves your scritches and Spot thinks your ear wiggles are the best.

    Ya know, you can't argue with Ben Franklin or scientific research.

    Love to you Ladies.

  4. I love this. Who knew happy hour could be so healthy! Now I have a legitimate reason to indulge.

  5. I just read yesterday that 14 drinks a week is considered beneficial for all kinds of health related issues. I am bumping up my intake, for health's sake.

  6. Hmmm, tequila blended with frozen fruit is now a health drink smoothie. Cuz I say so!

  7. Beautiful. Just
