Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
the Gunpowder Treason and Plot,

I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, t’was his intent to blow up King and Parliament.

Three score barrels were laid below to prove old England’s overthrow;
By God’s mercy he was catch’d with a dark lantern and lighted match.

Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

Hip hip hoorah!

A penny loaf to feed the Pope
A farthing o’ cheese to choke him.

A pint of beer to rinse it down.
A ****** of sticks to burn him.

Burn him in a tub of tar.
Burn him like a blazing star.

Burn his body from his head.
Then we’ll say ol’ Pope is dead.

Hip hip hoorah!
Hip hip hoorah hoorah!

Guy Fawkes Night
Remember it or he will get you

@Tardises: Well yeah. Are you aware of the origins of the Anon mask? The mask we associate with Anonymous, and by extension Epic Fail Guy, is actually a mask in the effigy of Guy Fawkes. They chose it mostly because of V from V for Vendetta, while Alan Moore chose it due to Guy Fawkes’ support of disestablishment of government, which was also V’s goal, as well as already being a strong British symbol. So Anon forever reminds me of Guy Fawkes.

BRB, odd fits of foreign patriotism. Gonna go burn a Fawkes effigy.

Way to go Catesby. You really knew what you were doing when you sent Fawkes to do your dirty work.

That is what today is essentially to me.

So apparently Anonymous celebrated Bonfire Night in style today. A peaceful gathering of many hundreds in masks at Trafalgar and Parliament Squares, though there was a notably sad lack of memetic tomfoolery present, but all the same.
