This came to me via my work email - I'm thinking someone thinks this could be a very difficult season and I will need all the "fortitude" that I can get ....... so I'm thinking wine will be the drink of choice in the office this year.
And to those who don't.
As Ben Franklin once said: 'In wine, there is wisdom, in beer, there is freedom, in water, there is bacteria'.
Through a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have discovered that if we drink 2 pints of water each day, at the end of the year, we have absorbed more than 2 1/2 pounds of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) - the bacteria found in feces.
In other words, we are consuming 2 1/2 pounds of poop.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol must go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting. Not to mention that alcohol kills bacteria.
So Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health
Therefore, it is better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.
