I think W.C.Fields had the same realistic concerns about water:
"Say anything that you like about me except that I drink water."
"Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house unless they have a well-stocked bar."
"Somebody's been putting pineapple juice in my pineapple juice!"
"Some weasel took the cork out of my lunch..."
"Fish 'do things' in it."
and i would just like to add to this, that I can honestly say that W.C.Fields was truly the only man I loved and trusted.
In fact i'm thinking now that i must have an image of W.C.Fields odorned somewhere on my rig. It would not be just to have it any other way.
