The List

Americans love lists. They can't resist reading rankings of things whether it be lists of greatest, worst, wealthiest, funniest, most influential, or sexiest. So in the spirit of America's love for the list, I have come up with my own list of the 100 most list-worthy people. In other words, I have ranked from 1 to 100 the people that most deserve to be on a list. Eligibility rules were simple: (1) The person must be either real or fictitious. (2) If real, the person must still be alive. (3) The person need not be a person at all. All other criteria is strictly confidential. So without further ado, below is a countdown the 100 Most List-worthy Individuals of 2008.

A few years ago espn.com had a look alike thing with athletes and celebrities. I agreed with ESPN then, as I do now, Mike Bibby looks just like Bat Boy (#15 on the List).

Great list! Obviously I don't know your criteria, but no matter, Dirk Benedict should have been higher because he was in A-team and Battlestar Galactica.

How come I'm not on your list? I'm only the most legendary plus-size supermodel of all time.

Sorry Emme, but I already had Delta Burke on the list and, well, you know.

It's a good thing the fictitious people are allowed to be dead or Fredo Corleone, Fred Weasley and Detective Lennie Briscoe wouldn't be able to be on the list.
