OK, through countless minutes of contemplating and about an hour of chatting with friends, I head to straightdope for more opinions. Here is my official question:
Among the world’s population today, who do you think–dead or alive (besides higher beings)–is the most popular person EVER?
Jesus does not count, because not everyone believes in the man.
Here are some responses I received. Keep in mind some of my friends didn’t think too deeply about the question …
Wu or False: Michael Jordan (me)
KraziErika: Brittany Spears! jp…i don’t know.
LBDanksta420: michael jackson haha
StaRGyrL15: martin luther king jr
ANNDREEEA: michael jackson actually
Ha, pretty amusing, I know, but now it’s your turn; can’t be too smart or too dumb to give an opinion … can’t wait to hear em! Thank you.
