“If money talks, then mine must have a speech impediment”

"Money talks” (meaning that money has influence) is an old financial saying, cited in print in various forms to before 1700. “When money talks it has no speech impediment” was published in a newspaper in 1952.

“The Mistress of Mortgage Manor says that money talks, but that it has a terrible speech impediment out at our house” was published in the Montgomery (AL) Advertiser in 1959. “Money talks, but my husband’s salary has a speech impediment!” was a comic caption in many newspapers in 1977.

“If money talks… mine’s got a speech impediment” was posted on Twitter by Picazzo Stevens on January 28, 2011. “If ‘money talks’ then mine must have a speech impediment” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on July 29, 2018.
