“If laziness was an Olympic sport, I’d probably come in 4th so that I wouldn’t need to walk up…”

“If laziness was an Olympic sport, I’d come 4th, so I didn’t have to walk up to the podium” is a jocular saying that has been printed on several images. There are several slight variations to the saying.
   
“If laziness was an Olympic sport… I would be fourth so I wouldn’t have to step up on the podium” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on November 19, 2015. “If Laziness was an Olympic sport I’d probably come fourth so that I wouldn’t need to walk up the podium #showerthoughts” was posted on Twitter by Shower Thoughts Bot on June 24, 2017. “If Laziness was an Olympic sport I’d probably come in 4th so that I wouldn’t need to walk up to the podium” was posted on Twitter by Men’s Humor on July 13, 2017. “If laziness was on the Olympic games I would rank 4th so I wouldn’t have to climb the winners stairs” was posted on Twitter  by Krees on April 24, 2020.  “If laziness was an Olympic sport, I’d come 4th, so I didn’t have to walk up to the podium” was posted on Facebook by “im not right in the head.com” on March 26, 2023.
