“Whatever you do, always give 100%. Unless you’re donating blood”

Whatever you do in life, always give 100%. Unless you’re donating blood” is a jocular aphorism that has been printed on many GIFs. The saying was first posted on Twitter on November 14, 2011.

“If you don’t believe in random sampling, go to the doctor for a blood test, have him take it all” is another saying involving blood.
