Einstein Earned $18 Million Last Year

I'm not making this up! Forbes has compiled the list of top earning dead celebrities, and Albert Einstein landed at #5 with $18 million last year!

Rounding out the top five on this year's list were George Harrison from the Beatles, who died in 2001, with $22 million, and German-born physicist Albert Einstein with $18 million.

Einstein has become a key trademark in child education due to the Disney-owned Baby Einstein brand of videos and toys.

Wonder if he gets any other royalties from the use of his likeness, etc.?
