Dumbass Sayings: “It’s All About The Benjamins”
Occasionally you’ll hear a person tell you “It’s all about the Benjamins.” Apparently this means that life is all about money because by “Benjamins” they’re referring to the 100 dollar bill which Benjamin Franklin is on. This saying never made sense to me. Why is the $100 bill the only denomination people are concerned about? If grand sums of money are the most important thing then you should expand your horizons to other larger bills. If you’re that concerned about money shouldn’t it also be about the McKinleys too? If you say it’s all about the Benjamins does that mean you’ll disregard a $500 note? It shouldn’t ALL be about the Benjamins. Now I understand it can’t be about the James Madisons and Salmon P. Chases’s because the 5,000 and 10,000 dollar bills are no longer in use, but surely some of it must be about the Clevelands ($1,000 bills). Let’s please revise this statement in the future to be more inclusive of more designations and quantities of U.S. currency.
