Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Catchy, right? These limerick-like words have been forever immortalized in the 2006 Wachowski brothers’ thriller, but at the same time, did anyone even know what the crap Guy Fawkes Day actually was? [This guy, not this guy.] A few of us… my friend, Rick to name a…one, have known for years (or at least vaguely remember the day we talked about it in 8th grade world history).
So in an attempt to share my vast knowledge of the subject with all of you (both of you…ok, Tyler), I give you this…the Wikipedia Page of Guy Fawkes. I promise it’s not that long, and it’s actually rather inspiring and informative. I know, cop-out blog! But in response to that, I must say, Fawkes off….Fawkes you? For Fawkes sake! I got a novel to write! Alright, my work is done here…
P.S. If you want to laugh, cry and/or be really confused, watch this trailer of horrible actors as well as amazing actor(s) within what can only be accurately described as the worst trailer ever made…and gasp along with me.
