Dear Mr. J


Please, take care of yourself. A recent joint study conducted by the Department of Health and the Department of Motor Vehicles indicates that 23% of traffic accidents are alcohol related.


This means that the remaining 77% are caused by morons who drink bottled water, Starbucks, soda, juice, energy drinks and stuff like that. Therefore, beware of those who do not drink alcohol. They cause three times as many accidents.


This message is sent to you by someone who is a drinker and worries about your safety.
