    #2 is the fake but it is rather awesome.Report

    My choices are two because Mammon doesn’t seem to be a real surname in any language.Report

    Ill guess Jesse Duplantis, because the others are like aluminum Christmas trees. No one would believe that they are Victorian old but they really are.Report

    I can’t choose, because I want them all to be real (I actually know who one of them is). If I had to choose, I’d go with #2, because it seems almost too good.Report

    I want them all to be real.

    But I’m going to guess #2 is not, because it would show an appreciation of irony incompatible with making one’s living via prosperity gospel preaching.Report

    I, too, am going #2.Report

    I don’t know. But if they were names of porn stars 3 would clearly be the fake.Report

    #2. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen one of them on a billboard and maybe the other as well.Report

    This is one where I am very familiar with the two real ones, so I will use the spoiler: #2 is the fake.

    Fun Fact about Duplanits: God once took him on a site seeing tour of heaven! Fun Fact about Dollar: God once told him He wanted Dollar to have his own luxury private jet, and He noted that he wanted Dollar’s followers to pay for it rather than have Dollar use his own money.Report

    Sadly, I already knew the answer as soon as I read it, because I’d heard of the two real guys.

    Yeah, it’s #2.Report

  11. As many of you knew, the fake fake is number two, Largo Mammon. I blame Creflo Dollar. On the one hand, any good fake fake has to be at least roughly as ridiculous as that name. On the other, “Creflo Dollar” is so memorable that even people not connoisseurs of the genre are likely to know this name.Report

    Has anyone seen a Creflo Dollar program? Whatever else one might say about him, he’s very talented.

    (There is not a whole lot of good network TV on Sunday mornings in Florida, but there is always Creflo and he is, if nothing else, very engaging.)Report
