Forbes Fictional 15

The people at Forbes have lost their minds, but in a cute way. Notorious for their lists of weathliest Americans, they have come up with a list for fictional characters called the Forbes Fictional 15. It builds on the original Fictional Fifteen list created in 2002. Unfortunately, I have no idea how they assessed the wealth of these characters, other than based on the source of their wealth.

The list includes fictional characters such as Annie's Daddy Warbucks, cartoon character Richie Rich (most definitely NOT to be confused with the Heatherette designer -- we're talking fictional AND wealthy here.), Disney's Scrooge McDuck, and the Simpsons' C. Montgomery Burns.

Topping the list is Santa Claus, who apparently has an infinite source of wealth, which is complemented by his low-wage, no healthcare organization. Those poor Elves!

Last on the list with $900 million is Lucius Malfoy, from Harry Potter. Since I know nothing about Harry Potter, I'll just leave that one be.

Hilariously, "fashionista" and evil-doer Cruella De Vil is on the list as having $1 billion in net assets, given the rise of fur-related fashions. She apparently went to F.I.T. and resides in London.

Who comes up with this shit?! Call me and be my new best friend!


  • that story is hilarious!!! so glad SOMEONE over at Forbes hasn't let 'the funny' become overshadowed by our failing National Security Strategy and downtrodden economy. oh, and thanks for picking it up for me to read!
