My eyes lit up with joy when I saw this little gem swimming around Pinterest.* First off, some of those pinners are a little overly motivational and obsessive about guilting themselves into losing weight...
...so there was that element of sad self-loathing, seeping into a pool of uncomfortableness for me to roll around in, like a pig in a mud puddle. But then, once I got bored of comparing the number of GET-SKINNY-YOU-SLUT shame pictures versus wistful photographs of rich desserts, I started to think, What if I pasted that motto over other pictures? There are so many possibilities:
"I don't stop when I'm tired, I stop when I'm done."
Raunchy: A lusty man sick of the "headache" excuse.
Punny: Anthropomorphic race car during a pit stop.
Offensive: Slave, prisoner, factory worker, housewife (and perhaps the fact that I listed all of those together).
Arrogant: Energizer bunny addressing all the regular bunnies.
Political: Euthanasia opponent.
Inspirational: Balto carrying penicillin.
Petty: Factory line workers gossiping about their narcoleptic coworker.
Cannibalistic: Sunday dinner, forced to turn himself on the spit.
Sad: A rotund woman sitting alone at a table, lit only by an overhead lamp, diving into a large box of decadent chocolates.
...And with that last one, I think we find the inspiration behind the original picture.
*Whoever thought up that site is brilliant. There is no end to the number of things I can make fun of. On the other hand, sometimes I find pictures of nooks under the stairs or baby animals that have fallen on their backs and just can't right themselves.
