101 most influential people who never lived

I am a sucker for lists. It seems every time I read something, there is a list. They can be about of what song was the best in 1985 or the 10 best sports teams who start with the letter C. Anytime you read a list and mention it to someone the other person always has a different opinion.
I was pleasantly surprised when I cam upon this list. Someone took the time to rank the top 101 most influential people who never actually lived. I copied the top 10 below.However, I found a huge mistake. Number 4 is around and still stops by my house most years. When he skips my house, Karen says it is something I did. Sadly that's probably true. So with further delay, the top 10 +:

1. The Marlboro Man
2. Big Brother (George Orwell's 1984)
3. King Arthur
4. Santa Claus (St. Nick)
5. Hamlet
6. Dr. Frankenstein's Monster
7. Siegfried
8. Sherlock Holmes
9. Romeo and Juliet
10. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Other notable rankings:
12. Robin Hood, 18. Mickey Mouse, 38. Godzilla , 50. Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, 64. Superman
and 67. Kermit the Frog and finally in case anyone is curious: 101. Paul Bunyan

From The 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived by Allan Lazar, Dan Karlan and Jeremy Salter

P.S. I think Santa Claus and Superman should be 1 and 2.

Comments:
And don't forget the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy!!!
 
Father Christmas should most definately be number 1.

Hey where is Miss Piggy?

Santa definitely #1.
 
Im with the others definately Santa should be #1.
 
Someone tell Jim that he left his garage door open. People have been carrying things out all day long.
