21. Peyton and the Papa
Meme Origin: Peyton Manning purchases 21 Papa John's franchises in Denver just as Colorado legalizes marijuana.
Call it divine providence, a perfect storm, or merely a coincidence. However you want to label it, the fact of the matter is that Peyton Manning might be the most fortunate investor of all time. After purchasing 21 Papa John's franchises in the Denver area, Manning saw his new home state legalize marijuana a mere 11 days later. No matter how much money he has made from his football salary and endorsements, it now seems a mortal lock that the Broncos' QB is going to be a billionaire within the next five years.
