"We, the People of Anonymous Proxy..."

Readers from 99 countries have visited my blog. I keep waiting for someone from a hundredth country to show up, but for weeks now my Neocounter has hovered right at 99.

(Which begs this contest: if you're my first reader from country #100, and you're willing to give me your address, I'll send you a prize from America! And I promise it won't have anything to do with George Bush.)

Today I noticed that I've had a visitor from the illustrious country of "Anonymous Proxy"! Which makes me wonder all kinds of things.

Like -- do Anonymous Proxians really wear eye patches?

And what if one of them happens to be the attention-getting sort? Does he or she get extradited?

And if someone from Anonymous Proxy signs a legal document for another citizen, is it considered "by-proxy-in-Proxy"?

And do the citizens of Anonymous Proxy have identifying numbers like a social security number, or does that go against their Constitution of Anonymity?

And hey -- do people even have names in Anonymous Proxy, or is everyone... anonymous?

I wonder if Alaska Airlines flies to Anonymous Proxy because, you know, I have $50 ticket to anywhere they fly and I'm ready for a vacation. But I have a feeling I'd be stuck there, because how could I board a plane to come back if... if I don't have a name?!

Ah, the things that tickle my mind before my morning cup of coffee hits my brain cells...

Good thing you put the Bush disclaimer in you might get a response!

Wouldn't that make a great short story?

hahahahaaa this made me laugh out loud. so funny.

If those are the thoughts that cross your mind, before your cup of coffee in the morning, please don't drink coffee anymore and keep blogging. YOu'd become a stand-up comedian!

Someone gave me their proxy to tell you who they were... but they had to stay anonymous.

(Good post!)
