SpongeBob Makes More Moolah Than Trump

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Think Donald Trump does well? Chew on this: Cartoon star SpongeBob SquarePants made $1.5 billion last year.

The animated fry cook is the top earner in Parade magazine’s annual survey of “What People Earn,” beating out stars like John Travolta, who made $25 million, and Lindsay Lohan, who took home $10 million.

And, if you thought the gap between the rich and the rest of us was getting any smaller, think again.

While Lance Armstrong wheeled off with $19 million last year and Angelina Jolie took home $27 million, Michigan martial arts teacher Ana Hotaling made just $12,000 and North Dakota blackjack dealer Ronald Smith only pocketed $10,000.
