Anon.r Dead?

Can it be true? Did our very own Anon.r, blogger at Super Happy Fun Blog, meet his demise?

I'd taken his blog out of my bookmarks a month or so ago because he hadn't posted in over a month. Went back there today to see if he'd posted anything new and he still hadn't- the last post being made July 23. Checked the comments on his last post and found this:

"We regret to inform you that the man known as Anon.R.mous died a hero while fighting a blaze in southern California. His name is being witheld at the request of family, nontheless I will say that he was a firefighter often sent to many places in the country both to fight fires and train others to fight fires. He died a hero, and will be fondly remembered by those who knew him."

Is this for real? The only thing that makes me wonder is I got the impression he lived in Arcata and I don't recall hearing of any locals that were killed in this summer's fires. I was also under the impression that he was a truck driver since he'd be gone for periods of time. Maybe he wasn't?

I was under the impression that he was a pot grower due to some comments he made in his very own blog about making more money in one week than most people make in a year. Do firefighters make good scratch in short periods?

Regardless, the guy is a real a$$hole, and while I don't wish him dead, the local blogosphere is a better place without him.

Nick Bravo has one less stalker.

I like(d) him very much - whoever he was.

I wondered where he's been. I'm very sorry to hear this. Very.

Anon.r.mous was Nick Bravo, dummy.

I dunno, man, I can't find anything online, so this may be a really, really good blog joke.

Maybe. But I was actually wondering why he hadn't even made a comment in so long.

Perhaps he decided to ditch us all?

I agree, it's his way of bowing out with a joke that leaves people wondering if maybe he was a "hero". Let's see the proof. Where's the name, where's the news story about the death.

Proof or it's fake.

Since he was a fictional character being played by a real person, I feel completely guilt free in celebrating his fictional death.

And to the actor who played him: get a better script writer for your next role.
