Dead Man Earns $40MM a Year

He's been gone for 30 years, and he's still raking in the cash... from the grave.

Elvis Presley is big business.. even more so this year on the 30th anniversary of his death. Last year Graceland brought in $27 million, and the overall business generates $40 million.

That is a buttload of velvet paintings and salt and pepper shakers.

Forbes magazine lists him as the "second highest grossing dead celebrity".

behind Curt Kurt Cobain.

It's Kurt, isn't it?

No wonder illegal immigrants don't want to learn English. We can't stick with one lousy letter per sound.
