“They just gotta say screw this inflation shit. Screw this national debt shit. We got the presses and we got the paper. We’re gonna run off fifty million thousand-dollar bills and hump them right the Christ into circulation.”
Source: The Stand by Stephen King
Context: Some locals are drinking beers and talking trivia at the Texaco station in Arnette.

Is it common to say 'hump' currency into circulation? I guess, it means here to unload or to put money into circulation (fiat money).
A more general relation question. Is the way the characters in the novel speak also the way the local people speak normally?

Thank you.
