I'm going out tomorrow to the local display and going round to my evil, dog torturing, neighbours house today, and they are putting their first firework in about 10 minutes, last years was brilliant so this years better be aswell.
I'm thinking of burning something tomorrow with the oil in the shed and the logs for the fire.

Guy Fawkes was a celebrated 12th Century baker. Each year we burn doughnuts in effigy and let off fireworks in celebration of his successes on the field of battle (NB It is thought that he single handedly defeated a battalion of light mongolian cavalry using only the power of his delicious malt loaf).

I don't really know why we actually celebrate a catholic royalist who tried to blow up the houses of parliament. Then he was Hung Drawn and Quatered.

Daft bat, we are supposed to be celebrating the fact that the plan was foiled. But I don't, I honour Guy Fawkes.

OH! What the hell is the point in that? I mean celebrating the fact that he was caught, he would've completely changed history... evan though, if he had done it he would have deserved his fate if he was caught.

True story. We celebrate the fact he didn't manage to incite a revolution, Bellum...we're kinda proud of the fact that unlike all the other fucktard democracies we didn't need a revolution to get there. We rock.
