“Did you hear about the new low-fat religion? ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Buddha‘“

"I can’t believe it’s not Buddha!” is a pun on “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!” that has been printed on many images. Buddha is often depicted as fat.

“Did you hear about the new low-fat religion? ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Buddha’” was posted on Twitter by English Muffin on July 7, 2013.

“A Tibetan monk sees Jesus in a tub of margarine and cries, ‘I can’t believe it’s not Buddha!‘“ is a related joke.


Wikipedia: I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! is a spread brand produced by Upfield and marketed as a substitute for butter.

Wikipedia: Gautama Buddha
The Buddha (also known as Siddhattha Gotama or Siddhārtha Gautama) was a philosopher, mendicant, meditator, spiritual teacher, and religious leader who lived in Ancient India (c. 5th to 4th century BCE). He is revered as the founder of the world religion of Buddhism.
