Now to Reclaim My Throne

I'm Joshua Abraham Norton, the first and only Emperor of the United States of America!
Which Historical Lunatic Are You?
From the fecund loins of Rum and Monkey.

--Arrived at by grace of the FSM and the mad but well-beloved Charles VI of France.

And if Mr. Bush refuses to hand over, I'll give him a whack with the flat of that sword I keep stuck in a boulder out back ...

Bonjour, M Metro

Are you sure you're not Merlin and that it's not a Wand stuck in your Back-Garden boulder

Alles Gute

Hmmm...
I keep coming up as Caligula. Dunno, for some reason I was expecting Marvin the Martian. I guess he's only a historical figure in my world.
FOOLS, I WILL DESTR.... never mind.

Ahhh, M Metro

errm - No - there is no resemblance between the humourous (~~~ humorous) IH and the Conqueror of Germania/Britannia/the Ocean/etc

Was it Caligula who said, in his Manual on Modern Parenthood :

Oderint, dum metuant

which should be translated :

Let them hate me

so long as they fear me

Hmmm. I thought Dog the Bounty Hunter was a shoo-in for this position. I guess he %#*@ed up, hey Metro-Boy?
My vote for US emperor, if I had one, would be for Flavour Flave. He'd certainly lead America out of their dark days.

@G Eagle:
Are you implying that I'm a wizard, or a different mythical creature entirely?

@IH:
I don't think Marvin ever actually ruled anywhere. You may recall he always seemed to be foiled, usually again. And cursing.

@CC:
What about Freddie Mercury? Even dead he's still fabulous.

METRO-MAN,

Freddie was certainly fabulous, but way too much of a Peter Pansy to lead a nation into battle. If you're going to the classic 70s rockstar card to find a swashbuckling monarch, one need not look any further than the Nuge.
Imagine Teddy telling the King of Denmark that he "has a face like a Mazerati."
All hail the Motor City Madman!

Yours in true rock anthem fashion, MM.

Sorry, CC. Nugent's completely off his rocker. I mean he's a foaming, raving loony. Not that he's not entertaining, ... well, actually, he's pretty much past it in all directions.

Although I still think "Cat Scratch Fever" rocks.

@G Eagle: Word.
