Still Drinking Water?

So another study has come out telling us to drink more water.  I hope you know how I feel about this – it’s ridiculous.  Last year I spoke of the dangers of water – encouraging people to drink rosé instead.  Apparently I need to address this annually.

The perils of dihydrogen monoxide, or “water” as the water people call it, are well-known. This chemical can cause a host of unpleasant conditions including excessive sweating and frequent urination.  As if that’s not enough it is also capable of corroding many metals,  is used as a fire-retardant, and in the production of Styrofoam. I think we all agree that anything involved in the production of Styrofoam can’t be good even if none of us really know why.

As I’ve said before, what person in their right mind would drink an odourless, colourless, tasteless liquid. It’s crazy talk. “Stone cold crazy”, according to Freddy Mercury – by all accounts a reliable source of reason.

Oh, by the way, the LCBO just got in a shipment of the 2009 Muga rosé.  It’s delicious. Go get some!

    i like the way you think travis, but when i went to the gym with a bottle of rose instead of that ‘other tasteless stuff’, the trainer there didn’t think it was the best idea. i might need to translate your this post for them so they could follow your reasoning. on second thought, i bet it wasn’t the principle they disagreed with, being spanish, they would probably argue for a bottle of red, not a wimpy rose!
