“Adulting is soup and I am a fork”

“Life is a soup and I’m a (fucking) fork”—a utensil useless for drinking soup—is a saying that has been printed on many images.  The song “(I’m Gonna) Kick You Out” (1998) by the Twelve Caesars opens with this lyric:
 
“I am what I am in the back of beyond
a man with a fork in a world of soup
Baby all this time I begged for a spoon
but now I know what I have to do.”

 
“Adulting is soup and I am a fork” is a variation of that saying that has been printed on many images. “Adulting is soup and I am a fork” was posted on Twitter by Holly Brown (and later by Charlene 💀) on December 23. 2015.
 
“College is soup and I am a fork” and “School is soup and I am a fork” are similar sayings.
