Shared Thoughts

By Margie Keane



This is for my friends who enjoy a glass of wine and those who don’t, but are always seen with a bottle of water in their hand.

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 one liter of water every day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than one kilo of Escherichia coli  (E. coli bacteria found in feces).  In other words, we are consuming a kilo of poop annually.


We do not run the risk when drinking wine or any other liquor because alcohol has to go through a process of distilling, filtering, and purification.


Water = Poop

Wine = Health

Therefore, it is better to drink wine and talk stupid than to drink water and be full of poop!


Both the House and the Senate drink a lot of water while in session. This explains the results therein.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information.  I am doing it as a public service.
