Given how long Bill and Hillary Clinton have been in the public eye -- 2016 will be their 25th year in national politics -- it's probably not a surprise that the rumor-debunking Web site Snopes has compiled 31 different rumors that it has verified or debunked. The rumors range from accusations that the Clintons have murdered opponents to Hillary Clinton's experience with the bar exam. (We spoke with the site's founder about the Clintons earlier this year.)

Barack Obama, by contrast, has only been in the public eye for 12 years, if you mark his 2004 Democratic convention speech as the starting point. So while you're probably aware that there have been a lot of rumors that have floated around about Obama, you'd be justified in assuming that Snopes had found fewer than 31 rumors to debunk.

But you'd be wrong. Snopes's page on Obama has substantially more rumors: 169, to be precise.

Part of that is due to the fact that the Clintons have been around longer than most people have been using the web. But part of it is specific to Obama. George W. Bush, for example, warranted only 46 Snopes debunkings, despite his having served the same length of time as Obama.

Below, we took some of the more bizarre rumors about Barack Obama and intermingled them with ones that we made up. Can you tell the difference between things that people believed about the president and things that are complete and utter fiction?

Good luck.
