Let's get 2015 under way with an "we've all done it" story

After all, who hasn't done this at some point:

Crown counsel Kate McKay said that at about 10.15am on Christmas Day, a 999 emergency call was made to police by a male caller who stated two men were making threats to kill him. Police were unable to obtain further information as the caller appeared to be intoxicated.

Mrs McKay said that five minutes later the same man called 999 and told operators he wanted to cancel the first call. He also claimed during the second call that there was a poltergeist in his house and that he was the pop star Nicki Minaj.
The man involved was released but banned from using 999 unless in a genuine emergency. He is free to continue to pretend to be Nicki Minaj if he chooses.

It's not clear from the court report if he was so drunk he actually believed he was Nicki Minaj, or just so drunk that he thought he could get away with pretending to be her.
