“They say do what you love and the money will follow” (joke)

“Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life” is an old saying. “They say do what you love and the money will follow” is the start of a joke that has been printed on many images

“‘Do what you love & the money will follow.’ So I ate some pizza, smoked a blunt, played Madden, & took a 4 hr nap. And now, I wait...” was posted on Twitter by jon donofrio on August 28, 2012. “They say do what you love and the money will follow… I ate a pizza, drank a beer, took a nap and now I wait” was posted on Twitter by Swedish Canary on March 6, 2015. “They say ‘Do what you love and money will follow’. So I ate cheesecake and drank some wine.. now I wait “ was posted on Twitter by Paulina H E on November 28, 2017.

The saying—at least in “cheesecake and wine” version—probably originated from an image.
