Now They Can Stop Doing Those Annoying Ads

The Buzz Log - From Cave to Castle - Yahoo! Buzz: "There's rags to riches and then there's rags to mega-riches. Two brothers from Hungary definitely fall into the second category.

Until recently, Geza and Zslot Peladi lived in a cave near Budapest. Completely destitute, the two cave-brothers earned money by gathering scrap metal and selling candy they found on the street. That all changed the moment they heard that they stood to inherit a substantial portion of their maternal grandmother's $6.6 billion fortune. (That's billion, with a 'B.')"

I have a feeling that "selling candy that they found on the street" would translate to "selling items that fell off the back of the truck" in our idiom.

It's just a coincidence that I have invited my dear long-lost cousins Geza and Zslot over for lunch this Saturday.
