Right, another thread has got me thinking. Well, at any rate, it inspired me to vent a grievance I've had for a while. Everyone blindly lavishes affection on the Forrest Gump quote, "Life is like a box of chocolates... You never know what you're gonna get." Does no one else have a long look at which chocolates are on offer before making an informed choice? I certainly do. They even go to the effort of giving you a little booklet to detail each individual variety. It would almost be rude not to. I'm not having any mint-flavoured or excessively nutty chocolates thank you very much, Mr. Gump.

Vote on the poll.

No, I just plunge my hand blindly into the box and immediately consume whatever I bring out, be it chocolate, cardboard or excrement.

That wasn't very funny, and it's only supposed to be a silly simile used for a comedy movie, there is no need to try and correct it.

I've thought of this as well, and agreed with you completely until you expressed a dislike for mint-flavoured cholates and chocolates with nuts in them, you cock.

Well, the orange and mint ones don't taste so good if you mix them

A box of chocolates with DIFFERENT chocolates.. No, but if all are the same chocolates, yes.

It's annoying that in a chocolate box with mixed chocolates, only 3 flavors are likable, the rest is some disgusting weird flavor that only people above 40 would enjoy.

Guzzle? Gobble?

I do not feel life is like a box of chocolates at all. Even the worst tasting chocolate is still chocolate. Your day can always get worse.

...**** now i want chocolate

you forgot one major point, forest gump was slightly retarded I don't think he cared which chocolate he got really.

If you take a single pick from the box of chocolates, you can't be assured which one you will get or not. Regardless of whether they are on the back of the box.

That's what his mumma told him before he got shot in the buttocks.

So yeah, life is more like a $1 bag of lollies, you'll never know what it's got in it until you open it and realise you just bought all the crap lollies that the dairy couldn't sell if people can see them.

I had some coconut rum once. Apparently they actually use coconuts to make it. I thought it was just flavoring. Result, EpiPen in my left leg.

Remember, if they're on the back of the box, then you have to turn the box upside down, meaning that they all fall on the floor.

Conspiracy to stop us all getting fat?

Or just proof that Gump was right? Even though the information is there... do you have the oppurtunity to know what you're going to get?

Considering i open my boxes of chocolates from the top like most people, then nothing falls out when you look at the back. Whether you know what you have or not is irrelevant, because you did not know before you had it.

The labels are a relatively new thing, plus with some of the names, you can't be sure what it is.


Oh and it's just metaphor, don't pick at it like a jackass.

Depends on the box of chocolates. In the film, Forrest eats chocolates from those flat boxes that open from the top, and the "back" is the bottom side of the box. If the chocolatey descriptions are on the unerside of the box, then yes, life is indeed like a box of chocolates.
