Dumbass Sayings: “Money Talks, Bullshit Walks”

Sometimes when you’re negotiating prices with an actress to get her to be in your “home movie” she says “Money talks, bullshit walks!” Now this saying might make sense if there wasn’t a saying that goes “Talk is cheap.” So if money talks, how can talk be cheap? Now you might say this means talk isn’t cheap, but there’s also another saying that goes “Don’t talk the talk if you can’t walk the walk.” This implies the act of walking is more important and meaningful than talking. You can talk all day long, but if you never actually walk and act on it then your efforts are worthless like bullshit. The proper saying should be “Bullshit talks, money walks.” When someone says “Money talks, bullshit walks” I think what they’re trying to say is “If you want to keep talking it has to be about money, if it’s about bullshit I’ll walk away.” Of course the grammar being used here is completely wrong. Only a mentally handicapped caveman would use the phrase “Money talks, bullshit walks” to communicate that sentiment. If you take the s’s off, it sounds exactly like something a caveman would say. “Money talk! Bullshit walk!”

This doesn't appear to be going anywhere.
