When someone says something like "life just likes a chocolate teacup", what does he imply?...

or "what's happening just likes a chocolate teacup"...

    This is not a common saying, as far as I know, though others may have heard it. In fact I find it rather curious. It would help if you would tell us where you heard it. It seems likely that was created on the spot to suit the context.

    I've heard of a chocolate teapot, Latenight. It's about as much use as a chocolate teapot = It's absolutely useless ~ if you put boiling water in a teapot made of chocolate, it would just melt.
    But we really need to see your context.

    I'm also familiar with the idea of a chocolate teapot. I would take this sentence to mean that life appreciates useless things. But without context, it's hard to say :)
