Arabic translation:مليونير؟ / كلا، بل أكثر ثراء!
Explanation:
Rockefeller, John Davison, an oil magnate who amassed great wealth through the Standard Oil Company and spent about half of his fortune on philanthropic works. (American Heritage)
Stockefeller is actually playing on words to imply that he is a "feller" (fellow) with a lot of "stock", as in even richer.
