Well, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! The annual Forbes magazine richest people list is on newsstands. And this year, instead of boring old Bill Gates wearing the richest man crown, it’s a new, mysterious (and hello ladies – AVAILABLE) billionaire for us to, I don’t know, feel alienated by.
Truthfully, I’m only writing this post because this year’s winner(?) has the best name – Carlos Slim. He’s a self-made telecom mogul from Mexico. Get this – his net worth increased $18.5 billion in the last year. He’s 70 years young and a widower with six children. Oh, and he gave away $65 million last year.
So, uh, I’m feeling punchy today so here comes the pun: maybe the old axiom should be “one can never be too rich or too slim!” Hahaha.
