“Sip happens” (sip + shit happens)

"Shit happens” became a popular saying by the early 1980s. “Sip happens” (sip + shit happens) is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as posters, hats and T-shirts. “Sip happens” has been cited in print since at least January 14, 2010, when it was cited on Twitter. A trademark of “Sip Happens” claims a first use in September 2010.


Wikipedia: Shit happens
“Shit happens” is a common slang phrase, used as a simple existential observation that life is full of imperfections and unforeseeable events, either “Así es la vida” or “C’est la vie”. The phrase is an acknowledgment that bad things happen to people for no particular reason. Phrases with similar meaning are such as “stuff happens” or “it happens” and are considered minced oath forms. In the October 14, 1941 episode of the long-running radio show Vic and Sade, “Vic Declines a Cornet Lesson,” Sade remarks wearily, “Stuff happens, don’t it? Stuff happens.”

The origin or earliest use of the phrase is uncertain. In a review of The Yale Book of Quotations (2006) by Fred Shapiro, The New Yorker critic Louis Menand observed that it was “extremely interesting to know, for instance, that the phrase ‘Shit happens’ was introduced to print by one Connie Eble, in a publication identified as UNC–CH Slang (presumably the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), in 1983.”
