Bono Bling Bling

I was reading the industry trades this morning and read that "U2 reigns supreme on Billboard's inaugural Money Makers chart" with $255,022,633.35 in 2005. That’s an obscene about of money for a band that reached its creative peak in the year never.

They made more money than the entire NY Yankees lineup ($205,938,439)
More than the GNP of the Kingdom of Tonga ($244,000,000)
They would own over 500,000 shares of Google ($400 per share)
They could buy over 100,000 pounds of Beluga caviar from the Black Sea and Caspian Sea ($2400 per pound)
