Bottled Water -
July 24th, 2012
We were meeting with our Iraqi sister publication, The Left Hand, earlier this week when the envoy in the meeting asked for some water. When our receptionist returned with a glass full, he was shocked at the sheer audacity she had shown by not bringing him a bottle. We explained modern filtration to him and the fact that our water was jacked with fluoride, but little buddy was really itching for a Fiji.
Look, we buy it and drink it too, but that doesn't make it logical. Bottled water is the greatest rip-off since Dolly Parton kept her top on in Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Yes, indeed it is necessary in some parts of the world, but Chicago? LA? Where you live?
Plastic bottles pile up, corporations count the easiest dough they've ever made and in the end we're short the most important thing… beer money.
