We’ve all heard of the birthers, who believe that President Obama wasn’t really born in Hawai’i and is thus ineligible for his office. And no one could’ve missed the fact that 17 percent of Americans believe that he’s actually a Muslim. But, in fact, there’s a whole host of conspiracies about the 44th President of the United States which at least some people believe are more likely true than the fact that an African-American man was elected to the highest office in the land by his fellow citizens.

So which are conspiracy theories promoted by anti-Obama fanatics and which are theories Raw Story staff just made up? You guess, and then we’ll reveal the answers below.

1. Obama is the Antichrist.
2. Obama is a reptile-human hybrid controlled by the Repto Sapiens.
3. Obama and actor Kal Penn were lovers.
4. Obama had a political enemy’s cats killed.
5. Obama likes getting blowjobs from male crackheads.

8. Obama was secretly married to a Pakistani man long before he met Michelle.
9. Obama had a friend murdered to protect his political career.
