So WHO is the mysterious Anise? The question that many have asked– senators, presidents, CIA agents, CEO’s, kings, princes, bill collectors… (oops! Let’s forget about that last one, shall we?) But the answers have never been revealed… until NOW! Aren’t we all excited?
(tumbleweeds roll by)
Well. Anyway. Some say that Anise was born on a pirate ship in the South Seas somewhere near the Easter Island Bar, Grill, and Lotto, and is somehow related to Keith Richards, at least when he was in the PotC role. Some are sure that she was actually born in the 11th century at the court of William the Exceptionally Well-Endowed and traveled in a time machine that can be obtained in the sixty-fourth dimension by sending in Captain Crunch boxtops.
