Halloween was almost a week ago. This post is timely and out-of-date at the same time. It boggles the mind.

The rhyme's about Guy Fawkes' Day, so I don't see how it's out of date (or am I missing something; what's this got to do with All Hallow's Eve?)

"Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, 'twas his intent
to blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow:
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.

Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip hoorah!"


(and then my favourite bit)

"A penny loaf to feed the Pope.
A farthing o' cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down.
A faggot 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!"

Mushu gave us a mask to print out. People here don't wear masks unless it's Halloween, Guy Fawkes Day or not.

The antagonist in V for Vendetta wears a Guy Fawkes mask, the very mask that Mushu linked to.

Sorry, my mistake, he's not an antagonist. But the character V.
