A history of it is what is

President Fibberlips outdid himself during a recent interview when he responded to a question about the coronavirus death toll with words.

Five strongly beautiful words. And every word contained letters. Very important the letters.

Fibberlips said, and we quote, “It is what it is.”

Take a moment to let that sink in. Now consider how much better the following quotes would be if they also ended with those same five words.


Marc Antony
“Friends, Romans, countrymen, it is what it is.”


Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which is what it is.”


The Bible
“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it is what it is.”


John F. Kennedy
“Ask not what it is. It is what it is.”


Dr. Pepper
“I’m a pepper, he’s a pepper, she’s a pepper. It is what it is.”


Russell Crowe
“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And … it is what it is.”


Rhett Butler
“Frankly, my dear, it is what it is.”


Winston Churchill
“If the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, meh, it is what it is.”


Captain Kirk
“Space. It is what it is.”


The Beatles
“Hey Jude. It is what it is. So get off your ass, take that sad song and make it better already.”
