Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 24

Ten imposters:

  1. Gregor MacGregor (pretended to be leader of Poyais, a fictional Central American country he had invented)
  2. Jean-Claude Romand (pretended to be a medical doctor working for the World Health Organization)
  3. Armin Tamzarian (pretended and continues to pretend under legal mandate to be Seymour Skinner, principal of Springfield Elementary)
  4. Bartemius Crouch Jr. (pretended to be Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, retired Auror and Hogwarts professor)
  5. Cromwell West (pretended to be Red Thunder Cloud, last native speaker of the Catawba language)
  6. Bruno Grosjean (pretended to be a concentration camp survivor named Binjamin Wilkomirski)
  7. Dave Kovic (pretended to be U.S. President William Harrison Mitchell)
  8. Mr. Wilkinson (pretended to be Arthur Slugworth, a candy-maker and rival of Willie Wonka)
  9. Arnaud du Tilh (pretended to Martin Guerre, a French peasant)
  10. Yera Allon (pretended to be Shrinking Violet, a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes)

Today's list is for mrghoul, who wanted to was interested in seeing Jean-Claude Romand in a list. I probably needn't point out that half the names on this list are fictional characters, but just in case: not all of the people listed above are real. I leave it as an exercise for the reader to identify the fictional imposters.
