Rich People, Real and Fake

Forbes figured out the net worth of fictional characters, and Buzzfeed put the list in a pleasing format. Meanwhile we prefer eschewing real math for fake math (ahem). Also: There are the same number of women on the top-fifteen list of fake billionaires as there are on the top-fifteen list of real billionaires.

But the lady to man percentage is better in the fake list, if you don’t count cartoons as men, which … maybe you shouldn’t? Or you should. IDK. We need more female billionaires. In life and on TV. I’ll start, if someone wants to hook that up.
