The 15 Richest People That Don't Exist

While surfing around yesterday, I came across a gem that I wanted to share with you. It's the Forbes Magazine Fictional 15. It's their take on the 15 richest people from fiction.

My favorite? Thurston Howell III.

Eccentric Harvard grad fled U.S. on eve of indictment on accounting fraud charges. Rumored to be living on private island in Pacific with wife Lovey and skeletal staff of trusted associates. Known for his bare-knuckled boardroom style, despite socialite manners. Once said that anyone believing a businessman should refuse to resort to thievery is simply "naïve." Congressmen and prosecutors looking to drag him home to ask him what he meant. Member since 1964.

From Wikipedia:

"Noer graduated cum laude from Rice University in 1992. In 1993, he became a Thomas J. Watson Fellow, and spent 15 months traveling in Europe and the Middle East studying the history of Santa Claus."

Now you know why Santa is #1 ;)
