“Adults are just kids with money”

"Adults are just kids with money” is a humorous saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as posters and bumper stickers. “Adults—kids with money” has been cited in print since at least 1988.

The slightly different saying “Adults are just kids who owe money” has been cited in print since the 1990s.
