• In the opening-night audience of “Atlas Shrugged.”

• Standing slightly to the left of Waldo.

• Was in a compound surprisingly close to West Point.

• Hiding on page 290 of the health-care bill.

• Was Raptured by accident 16 years ago and just managed to sort this out.

• An active and vocal supporter of the Gingrich campaign.

• Whenever anyone apprehended him, explained, “No, I just played him on an episode of ‘America’s Most Wanted.’ You wouldn’t believe how often this happens to me.”

• Is one of six people who actually show up to claim those hiking-massage Groupons, startling the proprietors so much that they did not notice his identity.
