Lord Rupert Ernest William Gascoyne-Cecil (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_William_Cecil_(bishop)), who was Bishop of Exeter in the early 20th century reminds me somewhat of a character from Planet of the Apes.

Apparently he was unbelievably scatty and absent minded, and many stories were told of his escapades, much to the amusement of vicars and suchlike.

For example, he once accidently cycled off on some guy's bicycle, which looked like his. On finding out, he visited the house to return it and apologise profusely, but then rode off on the same bike! :laugh
