Bill Gates has Nothing on Me

Forbes has published this hilarious list of the world's 15 richest fictional characters. Here is the list:
1. Santa Claus
2. Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks
3. Richie Rich
4. Lex Luthor
5. C. Montgomery Burns
6. Scrooge McDuck
7. Jed Clampett
8. Bruce Wayne
9. Thurston Howell III
10. Willy Wonka
11. Arthur Bach
12. Ebenezer Scrooge
13. Lara Croft
14. Cruella De Vil
15. Lucius Malfoy

Some of the list is pretty dated (Jed Clampett?), but it's entertaining and is further evidence of the American obsession with celebrities, even fake ones. The funniest part of this is the profiles they have created for each member of the list. For example Father Chrstmas is accused of having "low-wages, lack of health care coverage and union-busting tactics." Go over and check it out and feel free to suggest in the comments some folks that might have been left out .

I have to wonder about the placement of Santa Claus at the top. His power is really limited to a single season, despite the keeping of a "naughty/nice" list which you just try and make up for as Christmas opposes. I'd have to move up the evil geniuses (Lex Luthor, Montgomery Burn) as well as elevating Bruce Wayne, since he knows Superman.

Scrooge McDuck could buy up all those other guys and still have plenty left in his storehouse. It's not even close.
