How to Spend $40 Billion

The Sultan of Brunei pays his five PR people $12 million each. But

still ends up with really

bad press:

The total bill was $40 billion.

The gifts included $2,570,050 for masseuses and acupuncturists; $14,955,000

for a house supervisor in Singapore and $13,500,000 for a second house supervisor;

$2,580,350 for a badminton coach; $12,000,000 for each of his five public

relations officers listed as Yoya, Prall, Vicky, Shelly and Janet.

Desmond Browne, QC, the British barrister, also appears on the gift list in

the case, which will end with the biggest legal bill in British history of

about $408 million. He was given $5000.
