Filthy Rich

Recommended Posts

I wonder where the expression "Filthy Rich" came from?

It would seem all is not well in Dubai after Sheikh Mohammed Rashid al Maktoum's 6th wife has done a runner from their £85 million home in London. While I understand that money doesn't bring forever happiness, why is the expression used to refer to mega rich people.......Just a thought.
