Today featured a book this morning called “101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived: How Characters of Fiction, Myth, Legends, Television, and Movies Have Shaped Our Society, Changed Our Behavior, and Set the Course of History”.

The list includes people like Santa Claus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Uncle Sam, Rosie the Riveter, Uncle Tom, Barbie, Jim Crow, Saint Valentine, Sherlock Holmes, James Bond, Archie Bunker, Mickey Mouse, Atticus Finch, Kermit the Frog, etc.

#1 on the list is the Marlboro Man. Interesting.

  1. The fact that the Marlboro Man is just sad… Yay lung cancer!

  2. Were Calvin or Hobbes on the list?

  3. I haven’t read the book– I’d like to. I’ll let you know if they are!
