“If time is money, then an ATM is A Time Machine”

“Time is money” is a proverb that was popularized by Benjamin Franklin (1705-1790). “ATM” stands for “automated teller machine,” but there’s a joke:

“If time is money, then an ATM is A Time Machine.”

“If time is money is the atm a time machine?” was cited on Twitter on December 6, 2010. The ATM joke has been printed on many images.
