* Creator/DavidLynch. An article once described him as "Jimmy Stewart from Mars," and his interviews contain such gems as "I'm a real thin pancake! I'm right on the edge!" [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext It does ''not'' make sense in context.]] He also wanted to make a sitcom about the sunken continent of Lemuria.

[[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext It does ''not'' make sense in context.]] He also wanted to make a sitcom about the sunken continent of Lemuria. He used to announce the weather while wearing a cowboy hat, which he deemed "quite necessary".

* Creator/DennisQuaid's brother Randy Quaid (known for playing the CloudCuckoolander Cousin Eddie) has a long list of odd behaviours. At one point, he claimed to be targeted by a hit squad called the Star Whackers, who specifically target movie actors. He also once tried to get out of charges for breaking and entering by claiming the bill of sale on the house, which he previously owned, was forged.

* If his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7PD4f5uTOU Old Spice commercials]] are any indication, Terry Crews. Interviews on late night talk shows seem to support this, though not quite so loud and extreme.

* Danny Healy-Rae, a TD in Ireland. He made claims that eating a large meal had the same effect on driving as drinking alcohol, that Noah's Ark was more believable than climate change, the paving over fairy forts was responsible for the poor condition of the roads on the Cork-Kerry border and that [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill the Army would be needed to clear out some rhododendrons]].

** Before the man formerly known as Ron Artest, there was (and still is) former NBA star defender Dennis Rodman. With his bright colored hair, tattoos and cross-dressing favors he really sticks out among other basketball players. Ignoring his friendship with current North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (who's also one in his own way) and the fact he organized a celebratory North Korean birthday game for him, Rodman also showcased a book titled "I Should Be Dead By Now" with him being in a coffin, but he also used to have his own MTV show called "The Rodman World Tour", which as TheOtherWiki describes it as a show that featured him "in a series of odd-ball situations."

-->One cannot help following the lure of her erratic and lovable personality as it meanders and twinkles through page after page. There is something noble and Quixotic and high-spirited, as well as crack-brained and bird-witted, about her. Her simplicity is so open; her intelligence so active; her sympathy with fairies and animals so true and tender. She has the freakishness of an elf, the irresponsibility of some non-human creature, its heartlessness, and its charm. And although 'they', those terrible critics who had sneered and jeered at her [since childhood]... continued to mock, few of her critics, after all, had the wit to trouble about the nature of the universe, or cared a straw for the sufferings of the hunted hare, or longed, as she did, to talk to some one 'of Shakespeare's fools'. Now, at any rate, the laugh is not all on their side.
