Capturing life's momentary events

King of the Crypt

You may think this macabre but Forbes reports that some celebrities are still making bucks after they are dead! Due to royalties, the checks keep on coming.

Here's a quick list:

$40 million - Elvis Presely
$35 million - "Peanuts" creator Charles Schultz
$23 million - "Lord of the Rings" author J.R.R. Tolkien
$21 million - John Lennon
$18 million - Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel

Can you imagine this? Some of them have bigger paychecks after death than when they were alive.

Elvis Presely, still making money after all these years. I guess, in a way, he is still alive.

Every time I think that I'm getting old, and gradually going to the grave, something else happens. -Elvis Presley
