In Bacchus We Bust: Liquid Assets
This stream is started in the hope of bringing libations to you. Everyone
with a trace of thirst knows that when you're depressed it's due to lack of
stimulant. If everyone had the intention that your friend had when he
or she sent this letter it would go far toward quenching the Great America
Thirst. Within three drinks, make five copies of this letter, leaving off
the top name and address, add your own at the bottom of the list and have
the copies delivered to five of your friends who are experiencing the drouth
and whom you can trust not to break the chain In omitting the first name,
deliver to that person one pint of good liquor as a charitable donation. In
turn, as your name reaches the top and leaves the list you will receive 15,625
pints, or nearly 2,000 gallons, almost a year's supply. Now isn't this worth
a pint to you?
