Honestly Christopher Columbus seems like a lolcow in every sense of the word.

Seriously, his claims are so off-the wall they're hilarious. He was also notoriously close friends with Jack Chick back in the day.
He re-emerged in September 1859, laying claim to the position of Emperor of the United States.
Norton had no formal political power; nevertheless, he was treated deferentially in San Francisco, and currency issued in his name was honored in the establishments that he frequented. Some considered him insane or eccentric, but citizens of San Francisco celebrated his regal presence and his proclamations, such as his order that the United States Congress be dissolved by force and his numerous decrees calling for a bridge connecting San Francisco to Oakland, California, and that a corresponding tunnel be built under San Francisco Bay.
When the show Murphy Brown was on, the actress for the title character got pregnant so they decided to work it into the show. Since Murphy is single, they made the pregnancy a result of a one-night stand and since she didn't care much for the babydaddy she decides to raise the baby on her own (since this would be in character for her to do). Quayle raised a stink about this and it backfired on him since this ended up giving the show a huge ratings boost.I’m not old enough to remember Quayle, did he do anything other than correct that one kid wrongly?
