“Paper money is cold hard cash. A credit/debit card is hold card cash”

Paper money is “cold hard cash.” A credit/debit card is “hold card cash.” The line was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on AUgust 23, 2017:

“paper money: **cold hard cash**. credit/debit card: **hold card cash**.”

The consonant reversal was recorded in the book Speech Errors as Linguistic Evidence (1973) by Victoria A. Fromkin.
