Loot After Death.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:02 pm

Most people I know break their ass every day to make a living and put a little away for retirement.  Earning money is much easier for some.  Indeed, we all probably know a select few people who manage to earn money by not doing much of anything.

However, some celebrities earn a fortune each year for doing absolutely nothing.  Indeed, they generate a shitload of money even though they’re dead as doornails.

For example, the highest earning dead celebrity made $45 million in 2005.  Who do you think that might be?

Hint:  It’s not John Lennon.  In 2005, he only put a paltry $22 million in Yoko’s pocketbook.

The answer, along with the identity of the other top eight dead celebrity money machines, is here.

  2. Woo-hoo! I was right. It was ol’ Elvin, as my daughter used to call him.

  3. Eric is onto something. Jim, take all my Yoko Ono CDs. No need to wait for me to die.
