CO: plans to recycle urine to fight drought

Newswire 4/1/2013

Colorado Governor Hickenlooper announced a bold plan to fight persistent drought in Colorado. The plan calls for municipalities to recycle human urine to be reused in the water supply. The state has formed a partnership with Coors to take the recycled water to make a new Colorado local beer called Coors Golden.

Technically, I think this April Fools joke is true, I mean - you can't separate urine from water so they just strain out the "solid" matter and sanitize the remaining urine/water mix.

But at least now I know why Coors always tastes like piss.

The urine will bring out the mining contaminants in the "rocky mountain spring water". Delicious, perfect for a banquet. Coors will have to continue filming commercials out of state.

This will set the stage for the battle over urine rights. It'll be illegal to collect your own urine. hahhhaha.

I understand, when I was five or six years old my brothers slipped me a glass of toilet water when I was sick.

Those were dangerous day's. The piss in the beer saved me for sure or it might of been more serious. I WONDERED why I felt closer to all the guides after that, I guess piss is thicker than blood. Your very funny.
