“Life is like a box of chocolates. It doesn’t last as long for fat people”

The movie Forrest Gump (1994) contains the classic line: “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” A slight, jocular variation has been printed on many images:
 
“Life is like a box of chocolates. It doesn’t last long for fat people.”
 
The punchline “It doesn’t last long for fat people” was cited on Twitter on December 8, 2011.
   
“Life is like a box of chocolates. It sucks if you have diabetes” is a related joke.
