The Value of a Drink

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame.  Then I
look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their
hopes and dreams  If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and
their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink
this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my

And saving the best for last, as explained by Cliff
Clavin,of Cheers.

One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was
explaining the  Buffalo Theory to
his buddy Norm.
Here's how it went:

"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of
buffalo can only move as
fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is
hunted, it is the slowest
and weakest ones at the back that are killed first
This natural selection
is good for the herd as a whole, because the
general speed and health of
the whole group keeps improving by the regular
killing of the weakest
members. In much the same way, the human brain can
only operate as fast as
the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of
alcohol, as we know, kills
brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest
and weakest brain cells
first. In this way, regular consumption of beer
eliminates the weaker brain
cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient
machine. That's why you
always feel smarter after a few beers."

States, "having a beer" is a semi-harmless act that leaves you slightly mellow,
whereas in Germany it can leave you dancing naked on the roof of a moving
