“Water is good for only two things: floating ships and making beer”

"Water is good for only two things: floating ships and making beer” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The Denver (C) Post of January 24, 1996, credits the aphorism to “Ken Jones” (many people go by that name), but the authorship is uncertain.
