“If you can’t tell a spoon from a ladle, then you’re fat!”

"If you can’t tell a spoon from a ladle, then you’re fat!” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. New York-born comedian Demetri Martin said on the comedy special Person (2007):

“If you can’t tell the difference between a spoon and a ladle, then you’re fat.”
