Is a professional SEM worth more than a pound of Bananas?

It being Friday and just for fun...

On CNN Money this morning, I heard the mayor of Athens, GA commenting on wages and bonuses. And he said something about breaking down your annual salary to how much you earn per minute and see how much you're worth. He said "per minute I'm worth the price of a pound of Bananas."

So if a city mayor is worth the price of a pound of Bananas, how much is a professional SEO/SEM worth, I thought.

Any takers? Break down your salary to a per minute value and see what kind of commodity you could buy with that amount.

It may be a way to approach your boss and see if you can get a raise. "I know I'm only small potatoes now. But I want to be a big juicy steak soon."

Or if you're in the higher bracket maybe you're worth the price of a bottle of Dom Perignon per minute or a high tech ironing board, or... You can see where this going.

So, SEO/SEMs - Bananas or.. er.. ironing boards?
