Chronicles of Canon and Anon
“I don't get this.”
“Finally! A script so profoundly full of crap it mirrors my innards!”
“I should've handed Moses this instead of the ten commandments...”
“This script is Gay and Huffable at the SAME TIME! yyyyes!”
The Chronicles of Canon and Anon is a series of short play scripts that involve characters often designated by numbers, ranging from 1 to 10. The definite origins of the series is unknown, but many literary researchers hypothesize it to have been circulating underground since the early 1950s.
Themes and Motifs
Often times, the plays are set in a fictional desert, or other such isolated landscape. Each characters retain a certain individual personality that is left undeclaired for the readers to postulate and deduce from the language usage of the character and the progression of the dialogue.
Throughout the series, a repeating theme of hiccup is presented, at least in one of the total characters in a single play. Some believe that the character labeled by the continuous hiccuping is in fact a subtle reference to Jesus Christ, or a christ-figure embodying pain, suffering sacrifice, and a load of crap.
Another common theme is the death of one of the members, whether induced by other members or accidental. In "The Chronicles of Canon and Anon #1: Introduction," character #3 was killed somewhat accidentally due to #4's cup of cyanide. In the second episode, none of the involved characters die, but a dead snake is seen in the oil puddle of the plane wreck, which the characters proceed to consume.
In their review of the Chronicle, The Gay Team remarked that this whole series was in fact a revelation for the Pro-Gay-straight-anal-sex movement, seeing that all characters were male; this claim is yet to be confirmed.

Reception in Public Media
The public displayed mixed responses to the Chronicles, with some claiming that the author was probably huffing kittens, and some others claiming that it was a work of God, writing the new bible in symbolic form. Both arguement sums up to the Chronicles being a load of crap anyways, but the author is yet to reveal himself to the public view and respond.
The anonymous author of this chronicle identified character #4 to be the character that resembles the author the most. However, this remains unclear, as no further evidence exists. Furthermore, a recent investigation suggests that there may be a second author, or a co-authorship on the chronicle, the secondary author identifying himself as "Anon Man". The Gay Team claims these two authors to be the Gods of Gay Alliance momvements; this claim is yet to be confirmed.
Some speculate that Anon was at one time the well cultered final boss of the internet although no varification can be given. Police reports state that a small yet well organized cult was discovered to be the base of operations for Anon. The leading members escaped during a military raid resulting in a drastic drop in the sale of Respect on the internet's black market. Popular belief states that Anon deals in the smuggling of chocolate milk to this day.
