Actually, Life’s BOTH Short AND Long

Sign: "People say life is short and that you could get hit by a bus at any moment and that you have to live each day like it's your last. Bullshit. Life is long. You're probably not gonna get hit by a bus and you're gonna have to live with the choices you make for the next fifty years."

So I guess spending all my “retirement savings” is not a good idea? I was gonna spend them thinking maybe I won’t live to 65, no point in saving for someone else to get them, don’t you think?

Hey mister Accordion Guy,

Where did this poster come from? It is great! I’d buy a t-sirt with that.

The trademark symbol after “Life is Long” caused me to look at the USPTO’s database. “Life is Long, Plan For It” was registered to Commonwealth Equity Services in the 1990s, but it did not seem like they would use the rough language on the sign in one of their advertisements.

Simply googling the words in the sign suggests that its actual origin is the Chris Rock movie, “I Think I Love My Wife.”
