WATER...... It has been scientifically proven 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 bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop!
However, we do not run that risk when drinking wine (or rum, whiskey, vodka, beer or other liquors) because alcohol has to go through a distillation process of boiling, filtering and fermenting.
WATER = Poop
WINE = HEALTH
Free yourself of Poop, drink WINE!!!
It is better to drink wine and talk s---, than to drink water and be full of s---.

PS. I don't think so.
There is another version around that says if you drink too much water you die. Water is toxic in large quantities.

I think you're being kind, I believe it was 'I don't drink water, fish **** in it.'
The Italians say that water makes your insides rusty.
