She’s the bread earner

The speaker was talking about a couple and their finances.  It is a nice congruent conflation of “breadwinner” and “wage earner”, both referring to the person whose earnings are the primary support for his/her dependents.  Of course, “bread” is slang for money, so bread earner makes a lot of sense (cents?) to me.  A big thanks to Elaine Hatfield for sharing this one.
