Perhaps, R2. But as Lamont Sanford said to Fred, "That's why you're you and I'm me."

by Apostle Thomas, dropped from the canonreply 1811/17/2012

Joan of Arc, because the occasional Christian claiming to hear the voice of God keeps the DL on its toes.

Medea, as a rival to Ms Patsy Ramsey.

Paul Lynde

George Bernard Shaw, for a droll critique of everything.

Marie Antoinette, because we can all relate to losing your head over a basket.

definitely paul lynde. he's the epitome of the cunty DL poster. he should have had a reserved spot as R1.

Judy Garland had a razor-sharp wit, as did Truman Capote and Tallulah Bankhead. Conductor Thomas Beecham also had a hilarious and cutting mouth on him. Patrick Dennis would have been screamingly funny on DL.

Henry VI would have been terrible, OP. Such silliness. He would do nothing but share his latest prayers and called for peace and understanding, between babbling seizures.
