Another unlikely eggcorn suggested by a social forum. The first hit is a first person account of a first person account that outlines a perp’s justification. Otherwise, speaking valiums might suggest a need for sedatives.
I have a friend that says, “It spoke valiums.” The first time I thought I misheard her. The second time I knew she was a moron. I explained to her the word is “volumes”, like many books. She said it was “valiums” because drugs make people talk a lot. She said my way made more sense but she still says “valiums.” She’s a moron but she’s sweet.

So, do I really believe that Manning went to his cabinet (his “flock”—as in sheep) and told them that this woman with special powers told him to call the election? Well, I do! And that the others (Emily Dick-Forde was a given) went along with that speaks vacuums for the intelligence of the nation’s cabinet.

The bathroom speaks values about who you are
The fact that you consistently leave those words off speaks values about your integrity and honesty in this discussion.
Optimus looked down at the shorter Autobot and nodded, warm blue optics glinting in kindness. “Everyone deserves a second chance, Repugnus. The fact that you tried to save Red Alert—the very person who placed you in chains—speaks values about your character.”
