“When life gives you lemons. Life probably stole those lemons from some nice old lady”

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” is an old saying from the early 1900s. An anti-joke variation is:

“When life gives you lemons. Life probably stole those lemons from some nice old lady. Because life is an asshole.”

This version was posted on Twitter by Grover on April 12, 2013, and has been printed on several images. The ending line—“Because life is an asshole”—is sometimes changed to, “Because life can be a real jerk sometimes.”
