George Washington vs. George W. Bush

I feel sorry for George Washington. For a brief period of time, he was the most famous George in the world.  Today when people hear George, the first person they think of is George W. Bush.   George Washington has joined the list of famous accomplished people who have become the second place to something lame.  Julius Caesar used to be the most famous Julius in the world. Now when people hear Julius the first thing they think of is Orange Julius.

When people hear the name Malcolm, they used to think of one of the strongest black leaders of all time.  Now when people hear Malcolm the first thing they think of is the TV show Malcolm in the middle.

The reason that George Washington is no longer the most famous George in the world, is because there were about twelve billion additional people born between 1800 and now.  It’s hard for George Washington to compete with all those Georges, George products, and stories and remain on top.

    Do you really mean most famous in the world, or just the U.S? And Orange Julius? It’s hardly knowin even in the US, outside of California and a few other states.
