A KMSA Public Service Announcement

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, whisky or other liquor), because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember:  Water = Poop....Wine & Beer = Health

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit!  

This has been a public service announcement from the Knights of Moleskine, Spirit and Ale Ministry of Health.
