Billionaires with petroleum and coal money
Probably kill themselves if they had Cole money
Chris Rock gives a very similar example by comparing Bill Gates to Oprah in his snippet about the difference between “rich & wealthy”:
Also a very clever play on words, Coal money — Cole money!
Also, in one episode of Martin the character named Cole said “For 2 million dollars, I’d kill myself.”.
Additionally, billionaires typically do not make it where they are financially without sucking the life out of the people who got them there. For example, John. D Rockefeller, one of the richest men to live, used that practice. He was very smart, and an expert at micromanaging. However his millions of workers were going home with about 7 dollars a week. This was barely enough to survive, leaving them in poverty.
