Had a discussion about this during my morning class, a friend of mine though it was another day. So she just xt her english friend. Who suggested they go shoot fireworks from open bottles and lit people. Or something like that.
Why is it celebrated anyway? Because he got caught, because he tried it, because it's just fun setting hay on fire?
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up King and Parliament.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
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!
A bit unpolitically correct these days lol. Still bonfire night is still huge in Britian.
