“Life is too short for fake butter, cheese or people”

"Life is too short for fake butter, cheese or people” is a saying that has been printed on many posters. The saying was first cited on Twitter on November 9, 2012.

Similar sayings include “Life is too short to stuff a mushroom” (cited in print since 1975) and “Life is too short to drink cheap wine” (cited in print since 1976).

I think my gravestone will say “life’s too short for fake butter” however this will probably be next to “died age 50 of a heart attack”

FAKE BUTTER, FAKE CHEESE, AND FAKE PEOPLE
April 9, 2014
Here’s how things work around here.  After four days of eating virtuously, we make Alfredo sauce from scratch.

Because life is too short for fake butter, fake cheese, or fake people.  AMIRIGHT?
