“Life is like a door, never trust a cow because the sun is not a tomato”

“Life is like a door, never trust a cow because the sun can’t swim” is a nonsensical saying that has been printed on many images. The saying means that life doesn’t always make logical sense.
 
“In the Bible, doors are metaphors for the choices we make every day. We discover early on in life that we can walk through some doors and not others. But we need to make a decision each time we see a door” was printed in the essay “What the Bible says about the doors in your life” by Rick Warren, published by Biblical Leadership on April 26, 2021. The door metaphor is probably older than the Bible.
 
“‘Never trust a cow’ - Farmer tells of near death experience” was posted on X/Twitter by Braum Lincoln on December 4. 2018. A cow could attack at any moment. This saying is generic and doesn’t have a specific origin.
 
“The sun can’t swim” is a relatively new saying. As the sun goes down on the horizon, it might appear to be drowning in the water.
 
“Life is like a chair, never trust a bird because the rock” was posted on Facebook by Awonke G. Njiisane on October 30, 2020, and this received over 3,900 shares. “Life is like a door, never trust the Cow because of the grass.馃槍” was posted on Facebook by Bongiwe Rebecca Mtolo on November 2, 2020, and this received 6 shares. The sayings appear to be from Kenya.
 
“Ngiyaphinda ngiyasho Life is like a chair , never trust a cow because of rock”—borrowing from both sayings—was posted on Facebook by Vika Mkhize on December 26, 2020. “Life is like a door, never trust a cow because the sun” was posted on X/Twitter by DIY Ludwe on March 4, 2021. “Life is like a chair , never trust a person bc cows love tomatoes” was posted on X/Twitter by Makima on October 31, 2021.
 
“life is like a door , never trust a cow because the sun can’t swim” was posted on Facebook by Boonie Yeah on August 12, 2023. This has become the most popular of all the versions.
   
“...life is like a door , never trust a cow because the sun is a tomato.馃拃” was posted on Facebook by Trea Masango (and others) on August 23, 2023. “...life is like a door , never trust a cow because the sun is not a tomato.馃拃” was posted on Facebook by Timmy Turner on September 1, 2023.
