Why Wine? Why not?

It has been scientifically proven that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we will have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli (E. Coli) bacteria found in feces.

In other words, we will have consumed 1 kilo of Poop.

However, we do not run that risk when drinking wine (or rum, whiskey, beer or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

WATER = Poop WINE = HEALTH

Ergo: It is better to drink wine and talk stupid than to drink water and be full of crap.

The Danes say, "Water is for horses." I must say, I didn't drink much water there.

Uisce beatha (Irish whiskey) is, literally translated, "the water of life".
