“Exercise? I thought you said extra fries”

"Exercise? I thought you said extra fries” is a jocular saying that has been printed on T-shirts and posters. “I keep getting exercise and extra fries mixed up” was cited on Twitter on October 25, 2011.

“Exercise? I thought you said extra fries” was cited on Twitter on December 6, 2012.


4 November 2002, Star-Tribune (Minneapolis, MN), “Musings; Getting there; Sometimes the journey is as satisfying as arriving at the destination” by Jim Foti, Pg. 12E:
Extra? Extra what, I asked, and he repeated it several times. It sounded like “extra fries,” but he hadn’t ordered any fries. Eyes? I felt terrible for not understanding.

Then the light bulb clicked on: exercise. He was proud, for perhaps the first time in his life, that he’d gotten so much exercise.

Robert O’Brien, Sycamore Valley’s physical education specialist, who favors shorts even when the temperature dips into the 40s, is fond of slogans like “exercise, not extra fries.”
