    ...the fifth of November,
    the gunpowder treason and plot.
    I know no reason why the gunpowder treason,
    should ever be forgot.

    Guy Fawkes Guy Fawkes it was his intent,
    to blow up the King and Parliament.
    Three score of barrels hidden below,
    poor old England to overthrow...

    Have a good bonfire night all! :biggrin:

    We used to celebrate it by burning effigies of the Pope, but fireworks are a bit more politically correct these days.

    The Lewes bonfire council always does it and it's one of the biggest celebrations in the country. I don't think this is a matter of political correctness, more of just changing times.

    Also it's not the pope but pope Paul V.

    Well, I've found that too high hopes can be the bane of almost any movie experience. Luckily, I watched it without knowing what to expect (hadn't even seen the comics) and I liked it.
