If you were taken in to a psychiatric institution whom would they say you were impersonating?

You know, the classic inhabitants of the psychiatric wards supposedly are Napoleon and Jesus.
Who would you be?

@rebbel I should have said the classic inhabitants of psych wards are impersonating people?

@papayalily
Ah, you mean that.
Yeah, wrong choice of words on my part, i should have written: “People who think that they are famous historical figures.”.

I am not delusional about dwarves…but I do have a way with nature and like to stand around singing with my arms spread out waiting for the little birdies to land on me. lol

John Wayne, in character (so not even a person, but a character of a person.)

Or maybe David Lee Roth, circa 1981.

Or Flavor Flav.

One for each day of the week: Attila the Hun, Cleopatra, Florence Nightingale, Hercule Poirot,
Plato, Harry Houdini and to close off, last but not least- King Kong. All that should get me into isolation where I will be locked up and the key will be thrown away!
