124. WORLD’S 10 SCARIEST PEOPLE TODAY

Now that Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, once America’s most wanted men, have been eliminated from the face of this earth,  I want to take some time out to showcase what I believe are their replacements in my list of ‘World’s 10 Scariest People Today’ list.

Let’s go!

1. GORDON RAMSAY

Gordon Ramsey, host of Hell’s Kitchen and a whole slew of cooking shows on both sides of the Atlantic is one scary chef. His raging temper tantrums and outright bluntness makes one want to jump into a volcano than face his wrath.

SCARY FACTOR: He’s becoming more popular by the day and he actually runs real-life restaurants. Bring silver cutlery in case there’s poison in the entrees.

 

2. LADY GAGA

A woman who needs no introduction currently tops the chart with her No. 1 album ‘Born This Way’ probably because it was recently sold on Amazon for a buck.

SCARY FACTOR: Bad music sells, even for a buck. I would’ve used that money for TP.

 

3. ARNOLD ‘GOVERNATOR’ SCHWARZENEGGER

Recently divorced from long-time wife, Maria Shriver, Arnold recently confessed he had fathered a love child with one of his many housekeepers during his married life.

SCARY FACTOR: That Arnie is now a free man with equally liberated hands free to grope any woman out there within walking distance.

 

4. LINDSAY LOHAN

Lindsay has been plagued with nothing but problems the last few years and it doesn’t seem to be waning soon with her recent house arrest, bud despite that Lindsay has been able to pique the interest of fellow artistes, photogrpahers and movie makers who still give her assignments here and there.

SCARY FACTOR: That she has been cast with John Travolta in an upcoming movie or if she releases another album of songs.

 

5. THE KARDASHIANS

No talent, not much beauty, just wealth and fame, the Kardashian girls are increasingly building an empire around themselves through a slew of boring, self-indulgent reality shows on E! News.

SCARY FACTOR: That people find them interesting enough to offer them shows and that there are people watching this drivel.

 

6. PETER IROGA

Peter Iroga from the Solomon Islands was recently in the news for his enormous feet and a rare condition where he grows relentlessly.

SCARY FACTOR: If he gets angry with you, you may just get stomped to death.

 

7. JULIAN ASSANGE

Notorious for being the man behind the most scandalous political exposes in 2010, Assange has now risen to a role of what one can call ‘matrydom’. A hero to some and a zero to others, Assange is the new cyber conscience of the 21st century.

SCARY FACTOR: Unassuming and cool guy but he could be the start of a great era of peace and honesty or all out world wars. You decide.

 

8. COLONEL GADDAFI

Leader of the war-stricken nation of Libya, this surgery-altered leader has a charisma, stubborness and arrogance of most villains in a James Bond movie. Unrelenting, power-hungry and always placing himself and his entourage first, Gaddafi is a snake that has turned on his people and perhaps one day he will do so on himself.

SCARY FACTOR: One man with willpower who will never surrender or say die till he IS dead.

 

9. AL-QAEDA

Not necessarily a person but a group of persons capable of creating untold destruction wherever they decide to do so.

SCARY FACTOR: Despite the death of their recent leader, Bin Laden, there are many replacement leaders in the wings ready to take over the ship with much passion and zeal.

 

10. YOUR VIRTUAL SELF

From Facebook, Twitter, Second Life, Youtube and blogging, people all around the world have created virtual versions of themselves existing in the power grids and networks of cyberspace. Our alternate selves have transcended a place our real selves can never be or go, where what we say and do are so much more entertaining than who we are in our daily lives.

SCARY FACTOR: That these immortal versions of ourselves will outlive us on the Internet, forever preserved in cyber land.

About thejellyfarm

In real life, I am a television writer and producer...er no...scratch...a television director....noo, scratch....a media loser.....wait, that doesn't sound quite insulting enough....... OK, ahem. In real life, I'm an idiot box expert with a penchant for the creative. In short, I'm a loser with no focus or direction in life. I just go where the creative flow takes me. Mostly it takes me to clogged up drains and stinky oceans but it's going.......going.....somewhere. And this blog is an expression of that mindblowing roadblock. Creative frustration is a great motivator and here is a result of that.

  1. Sheet, none of these were scary. The scary ones to me are Paul Ryan, Scientologists, Evangelicals, that Strauss-Kahn guy, Casey Anthony, Jared Loughner and anyone with an NRA card.

      Actually I agree that in the short term, those religious fanatics you named
      are potentially more scary but only in terms of the US. The people I feel (and note
      that this is only MHO) that these folks have the long-term abilities to cause ripple effects in
      the world as icons or public enemies. Again, only my opinion sir.

  2. I am coming from Germany, however , Austria is the neighbor. Due to this fact, I will be embarrassed a little how Schwarzenegger had behaved. Right now I’ve read that there’s no marriage contract. The divorce will bring to Maria Shriver big money. Actually, she’s ample of it.

  3. This is crap. I’d replace your virtual self (which isn’t a person) with Anonymous (which also isn’t a person but actually makes more sense.

  4. Menschenfresser

    I have to agree with the gentleman above me, in regards to the “virtual self” contra Anonymous.

    Scary? YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW FEAR!
