"In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria."
~ Ben Franklin
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre 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 poop. In other words, we are consuming 1 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 = poop, alcohol = health; therefore it is better to drink alcohol and talk stupid than drink water and be full of poop!
