It's not a stretch. Caligula wanted to make his fav horse (Incitatus) a consul, on the grounds that this would improve both the intelligence and the overall sense of humo(u)r of the Senate. The Senate was Not Amused®, so he didn't quite dare. Their reaction did make his point for him, though. (yes, it was possible to troll before there was an Internet. Several Emperors, Kings, Popes and other prominent persons were quite good at it.)
