And I'm the Queen of Sheba

Go To
After the volume ended, that legionnaire would soon be dealing with legal name-change procedures and same-name arguments with the real deal too.

Sanjei: Unhand me, peasant. I am Prince Sanjei of Ishkabar.
Delilah: Mm-hmm, and I'm the Queen of Sheba.
Sanjei: Oh, nice to meet you, your highness.

A form of sarcastic rejoinder, responding to an improbable statement with an even more improbable statement.

Bob: I'm actually the High King Bobertissimus in disguise!
Alice: Yeah, and I'm the Pope on a skiing holiday.

Popular forms include "I'm the Queen of Sheba", "I'm a monkey's uncle", "I'm the Queen of England", and "I'm the King of Siam".

Can lead to interesting results if Bob takes Alice at her word, which may be because he's constitutionally deaf to sarcasm, doesn't expect her to disbelieve him, or doesn't recognize the improbability of her statement. Or Bob may sarcastically reference Alice's statement when his improbable statement is proven true. See Cue the Flying Pigs.

Compare Napoleon Delusion. See also Or My Name Isn't.... If the person is secretly who they are claiming to be and only saying it in a sarcastic manner to throw the listener off, it's a Sarcastic Confession.

  • The Moomins comic strip had several storylines in which the Moomins used a Time Machine to travel back in time (usually because Moominpappa longed for the glory and romance of the old days, only to find out that the old days weren't as glorious or romantic as he thought), and at one point the trope was played, word for word, when the family went back to Ancient Egypt. At their first stop, the Moomins are mistaken for gods because, in the words of the Egyptians, "who but a god would dare to take on the appearance of the holy white hippo?" However, when the family make a time-jump for a century or so and try their God Guise again, the new Egyptians just shake their heads:
