“Carrots are a great thing to eat when you are hungry and want to stay that way”

"Carrots are a great thing to eat when you are hungry and want to stay that way” is a jocular one-line saying by Mara Wilson that was cited on Twitter on October 9, 2014. The joke quickly went viral.

Other food terms, such as “salad” or “celery” or “vegetables,” sometimes replace “carrots” in the one-liner.
