„There's a sucker born every minute.“

— P.T. Barnum
Commonly attributed to Barnum, there is much testimony of contemporaries that he never actually said this, and in [ "P. T. Barnum Never Did Say "There's a Sucker Born Every Minute"] R. J. Brown asserts that it actually originated with a banker named David Hannum, in reference to one of Barnum's hoaxes: a replica of the Cardiff Giant.
