-Thomas, if you are a mouse catcher, I'm Lana Turner, which I'm not.

This sentence has been taken from 'tom and jerry'. This sentence is very strange for me. First, the speaker has said that she is Lana Turner, but later she is saying- she is not Lana Turner.

Please, clarify this fact.

Thanks in advance.

@Nousher Ahmed,
The speaker is saying that the person she is speaking to is not a mouse catcher.

IF YOU ARE A MOUSE CATCHER, then I am Lana Turner. I am not Lana Turner, therefore you are not a mouse catcher.

We often use expressions like this.

If John wins the race, then I'm a Dutchman. I am not a Dutchman, therefore I am saying I believe John will not win the race. Or I could be a monkey's uncle, Jesus Christ, Julius Caesar, the King of England, the Queen of Sheba, Mahatma Gandhi, the Tooth Fairy, in fact anyone or anything that I am obviously not.
