“A small carafe of wine is illogical, immoral and inadequate”

"A small carafe of wine is illogical, immoral and inadequate” has been printed on an image. “Chuck’s Conclusion: A small carafe of wine is illogical, immoral, and inadequate” was printed in the book 1,001 Logical Laws... (1979) by John Peers and Gordon Bennett. It’s not known who “Chuck” is or when the saying originated.

“All the things I really like to do are either immoral, illegal, or fattening” is a perhaps related saying.
