Some obvious ones, surprisingly ignored in this thread:

Tristana (her E blows out entire minion waves simply by last hitting).

Nidalee (cougar form, two full combos: one pounce and swipe per minion type every wave, firs to clear melee minions, second to clear caster minions, and a Takedown for the large turret minion).

Mordekaiser. Virtually free, low CD AoE spells that wipe entire minion waves in a single volley. Every other 'good' farmer is dependent on mana.

Karthus is pretty good at farming with his AoE. Cait is good at farming too.

Swain is actually a pretty solid farmer too, his ult is a toggle which keeps his health full, and if you clear the wave right, you shouldn't lose mana that you can't regen before the next wave comes along, plus with his E giving him bonus damage to a target, you can clear Super creeps without much effort.
Sivir, TF, and Heimer beat pretty much anyone for pure farming, but they lose out in utility since they rely on farming (ie, if you have some form of trouble while farming, you aren't going to be doing much)

Heimer's the only champion in the game who can farm two lanes at a time.

Barring those cute circumstances where you can actually leave your turrets up right outside an enemy tower for a while, Sivir's the best farmer.

Karthus can farm better than anyone on that list if you consider the whole game. Lay Waste early and Defile mid to late game.

Vladimirs who know how to use Tides of Blood will also out farm half the ppl on your list. By late game it's 3 seconds to clear every single minion no matter how many are piled up.

Anivia once she's good to go though is probably the best. Riot has even commented to that effect.

Kennen should make this list. Before you have any AP u can last hit like a beast with Q and W, and when you have enough AP an E through the creep wave followed by a W will kill everything....... for free......

Anyone who blindly says Sivir has never stopped and asked why she farms so well and how other champions could farm as well as her. Cho'Gath can clear waves with his abilities as fast as Sivir can. As does Sion. As does Mordekaiser.
