Alcohol Continues to be Good For Your Heart

That juggernaut called "science" isn't always a popular thing, especially since scientists haven't even gotten around to inventing personal jet packs yet, but one thing I can say for scientists is that they seem to like their booze. Studies are constantly being revealed touting the good effects of liquor, and most of them specify a certain type that is especially good. A recent study from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard School of Public Health in Boston reveals that drinking alcohol three to four times a week can be good for your heart, a higher number than in other studies I've read. The study contains a lot of terms and scientific gobbledygook I don't understand, but the long and short seems to be that the "researchers safely concluded that there is a causal inverse relation between alcohol consumption and heart attack." Between that and news that booze builds brain cells, I should be the model of good health.

I would like to recommend, in the interest of strong and healthy cardiovascular systems, a tasty, anit-oxidant rich beverage known as Dumpster Juice. I know, it sounds a bit pretentious, like a Cosmopolitan, but with more "country club" appeal, but trust me, it will make you grab yer sack and scream "Bullseye!". Dumpster Juice is an all purpose concoction that is right at any time. Here is the recipe: 1 oz vodka, 1 oz 151 rum, 1 oz Orange juice, 1/2 oz midori, 1/2 oz chambord. Yeah, Jake, it has a lot of ingredients- but it is brown and it is down. I thank the second floor bathroom at 30 Isham, Pure Pop, Spanish Fly and the music group that reached the top 80 in Guatemala, Dumpster Juice.
