“A father carries pictures where his money used to be”

"A father carries pictures where his money used to be” is a jocular line of unknown authorship. “A father is someone who carries his children’s pictures where his money used to be” was cited in a 1969 newspaper column as “overheard.” “Father—someone who carries pictures where his money used to be” was published in many newspapers in 1974 as “Today’s Chuckle.”


15 November 1969, Colorado Springs (CO) Gazette Telegraph, “Bradley Broadly” by Wes Bradley, pg. 10-C, col. 4:
OVERHEARD: (...) A father is someone who carries his children’s pictures where his money used to be.
