One Tiger Woods equals between nine and ten Bill Clintons

The Washington Post reckons that Slick Willy pulled in between nine and ten 'units' from making some 352 speeches last year. I wonder whether he uses the same jokes every night?

For purposes of comparison, I dug up the Forbes celebrity rich list, which estimates Woods as having made $90m last year, although that is back of the couch money compared to Oprah Winfrey's $225m. Further down the food chain, one could get between four and five Clinton's for one Simon Cowell, one and a half for the cast of Desperate Housewives but only 7/9ths of a Clinton for Paris Hilton. There is rough parity between the dog hard to keep on the porch and both Serena Williams and the two Broadway leads in The Producers.

For the same reason that dogs bury bones - so I'd have a treat for later..
