** Subverted with Charlie Harper. He is a very successful advertising jingle writer and he makes a lot of money in royalties. Most people could have comfortably retired on that income but Charlie spends all his money on booze, drugs, gambling and hookers so he regularly has to go back to work and write new jingles. When that is not enough to support his lifestyle, he branches out into writing children's songs and makes even more money in royalties.
