“Life is like a box of chocolates. It doesn’t last as long for fat people”

The movie Forrest Gump (1994) contains the classic line: “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” A slight, jocular variation has been printed on many GIFs:

“Life is like a box of chocolates. It doesn’t last long for fat people.”

The punchline “It doesn’t last long for fat people” was cited on Twitter on December 8, 2011.


Wikiquote: Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump is a 1994 film starring Tom Hanks about a mentally challenged man’s epic journey through life, meeting historical figures, influencing popular culture, and experiencing first-hand historical incidents while largely unaware of their significance.
Directed by: Robert Zemeckis. Written by Eric Roth, based on the novel by Winston Groom.
