“The first few weeks of Weight Watchers you’re just finding your feet”

"The first few weeks of Weight Watchers you’re just finding your feet” is a popular fat joke that has been printed on many images. British stand-up comedian Jimmy Carr has often used the line in his act, but it’s not known when he first said it. The one-line saying was posted on Twitter on November 12, 2010.


Wikipedia: Jimmy Carr

20 November 2011, The Sunday Telegraph (London, UK), “Charm Offensive: He doesn’t drink, rarely eats after 6pm and approaches every joke as if he were solving a puzzle. But for all his discipline, does Jimmy Carr sometimes go too far?” by Nigel Farndale, pg. 12:
He certainly employs a lot of these short jokes in his live shows. There are always 300 in a set. One from his new DVD gives a flavour of his comic voice. “The first few weeks of joining Weight Watchers, you’re just finding your feet.”
