Calculating Self Worth

Part I – What’s a former president’s daughter worth?
If your last name is Clinton then the answer is 40 goats and 20 cows. That’s what a Kenyan city councilman says he offered Bill Clinton for Chelsea’s hand in marriage five years ago. He’s still waiting for an response.

Part II – How much is that Queen in the castle?
According to the Royal Public Finances annual report, it cost British taxpayers 36.7 million pounds ($69 million) to maintain Queen Elizabeth’s household in 2004-5. That comes to 61 pence ($1.12) per royal subject, the same amount they’d spend on a loaf of bread, 1/5th of an order of haddock and chips, or half a pint of Guiness, not nearly enough in which to drown their sorrows.
