“For better digestion, I drink beer. In case of appetite loss, I drink white wine…” (joke)

“Interview with a wise 101 year-old Hattie Mae MacDonald of Feague, Kentucky” is a drinking joke that has been circulating since at least 2014. There is no Feague, Kentucky. The interview:
     
Reporter:  Can you give us some health tips for reaching the age of 101?
Hattie: For better digestion I drink beer.  In the case of appetite loss I drink white wine.  For low blood pressure I drink red wine.  In the case of high blood pressure I drink scotch.  And when I have a cold I drink Schnapps.
Reporter:  When do you drink water?
Hattie:  I’ve never been that sick.

One grandmother once lectured her grandson about her practical knowledge:

“For better digestion, I drink beer,
For loss of appetite, I drink white wine,
With low blood pressure, I drink red wine,
With high blood pressure, I drink cognac,
And whenever I have a cold, I drink Vodka.

He asked, “And when do you drink water?”
 
Her reply: “I have never been that sick!”
