Famous People Who Were Total Nobodies While They Were Alive

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

Famous people, for all their creativity and ingenuity, are often rewarded with fortune, the limelight, and probably toilet paper made out of $100 bills. Unless you're anyone on this list, that is.

Because it turns out that when fortune smiles upon you, there's no designated time in which she does. And sadly, some of the most famous people on the planet only became so after they kicked the bucket.
