“Has anyone lived long enough to buy a second bottle of Worcestershire sauce?”

Worcestershire sauce is something that many people don’t use a lot of.

“Has anyone lived long enough to buy a 2nd bottle of Worchestershire sauce ?” was posted on Twitter by Jason on December 6, 2020. “Has anyone lived long enough to buy a second bottle of Worcestershire sauce?” was posted on Twitter by Shane Elliott on December 7, 2020.

“We’ve been married so long we’re on our second bottle of Tabasco” is a related joke, with “Tabasco” sometimes replaced with “Worcestershire.” “This you won’t believe. We know a couple who had been married so long that they are on their second bottle of Worcestershire sauce” was printed in the Fort Lauderdale (FL) News on December 18, 1974. “We must have been married a long time, as we are on our second bottle of Worcestershire sauce!” was printed in The Country Today (Eau Claire, WI) on July 17, 1996.

“Has anyone lived long enough to buy a second jar of Marmite?” is a similar saying.


Wikipedia: Worcestershire sauce
Worcestershire sauce (/ˈwʊstərʃər/ WUUS-tər-shər) is a fermented liquid condiment created in the city of Worcester in Worcestershire, England during the first half of the 19th century. The creators were the chemists John Wheeley Lea and William Henry Perrins, who went on to form the company Lea & Perrins. Worcestershire sauce has been considered a generic term since 1876, when the English High Court of Justice ruled that Lea & Perrins did not own the trademark to “Worcestershire”.

It’s like that old joke about the couple who had been married so long (how long?) that they were on their second bottle of worcestershire sauce…

In the 70’s, the gold standard for marriage longevity was being on your 2nd bottle of Worcestershire Sauce.
