Dog. Coz your code instantiates the anonymous class extending Thread and assigns the object reference to t.

But isn't there a rule that says the runnable object that is passed to the thread gets its run method called.

If you didnt have that anonymous class definition , it would have constructed a Thread object using the constructor Thread(Runnable r). BUT here your code instantiates a subclass of Thread (not the Thread class), declared anonymously and assigns its ref to "t". Anonymous class has to do what its created for.
