"Fantasy"??? You Mean "Nightmare"!!!!

(via LGF) In yet another article proving that BBC readers/watchers/whatevers are functioning on few if any live braincells, players in the interactive Power Game" were asked to choose the eleven people that they would want to run their "fanstasy world government". And... the top eleven are... scary:
1 - Nelson Mandela
2 - Bill Clinton
3 - Dalai Lama
4 - Noam Chomsky
5 - Alan Greenspan
6 - Bill Gates
7 - Steve Jobs
8 - Archbishop Desmond Tutu
9 - Richard Branson
10 - George Soros
11 - Kofi Annan
Ew... well, since I'm guessing that they only wanted living persons, there goes the top of my list, but... oh, well. But... those eleven? Yikes. Let's see what we've got... 2 religious leaders (what about separation of church and state???)... three evil capitalists (but they're moonbats, so that's ok, I guess)... three corrupt world leaders... a brainy anarchist... a rich mastermind... and Alan Greenspan???? What's up with that???

Let's see... other notables... George W Bush was #43 (how convenient, eh?). JK Rowling was #49. Bono came in 14th, and Hugo Chavez was 32nd.

OK... so I think everyone know what I think of this, right? People who read the Beeb news site (and buy it hook, line, and sinker) are... umm... a few fries short of a Happy Meal. But... what do you think? Who would YOU put on your "fantasy world government"? Just to be fair, let's keep it to people who are alive at the time you post your comment, and follow the rest of the Beeb's rules.
Users were required to pick at least one each from a select list of leaders, thinkers and economists, and had a free choice of any other eight, including the option of selecting "wild cards" from areas such as sport, politics, arts and design.
But... since I don't have the lists of leaders, thinkers, economists, and everyone else that they used... I'm just going to have to leave that up to you.

Leave your lists in the comments... this should be fun!
