“Men are like bank accounts—without a lot of money, they don’t generate much interest”

"Men are like bank accounts—without a lot of money, they don’t generate much interest” is a humorous one-line saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as posters, T-shirts and coffee mugs. The saying has been cited in print since at least 1999 and is of unknown authorship.
