I just had to laugh out loud

I was reading an article on Yahoo news about a man, who lives in a tent on a tiny Shetland Island named Forvik has filed for “independence” from the British Crown.  Apparently the chain of Shetland Islands fall under the British government, and this man (Stuart Hill) has decided to make his island a “crown dependency” out of the 2.5 square mile island that he owns.  He says he will make his own currency and collect no taxes.  What is so very funny about this story is that he is the ONLY resident of the island!  I just can’t even imagine that!

    Isn’t that story a real hoot! I wonder if he has had a crown designed to put on his head?
