Absence paradox (19TH CENTURY)

A source of humor used in music halls, but possibly ancient.

No person is ever present, because he is either not in Vladivostok or alternatively is not in Patagonia, so he must be somewhere else. If he is somewhere else, he certainly is not here.

This argument understands a relative adverb as absolute.
