“There are two reasons I would never drink toilet water. Number 1 and number 2”

"There are two reasons I would never drink toilet water. Number 1 and number 2” is a jocular one-line saying about reclaimed or recycled water that has been printed on many images. American stand-up comedian David Brenner (1936-2014) wrote in the book I Think There’s a Terrorist in My Soup: How to Survive Personal and World Problems with Laughter—Seriously (2003):

“There are two reasons why I will never drink toilet water. Number one . . . and number two.”


Wikipedia: David Brenner
