Guy Fawkes NIGHT

While millions of big fat Americans are suffering from post-Halloween pre-diabetic comas, the British are busy prepping their mannequins and groaty pudding for Guy Fawkes night.

This holiday celebrates the failure of the Gunpowder Plot of November 5th, 1605. On this day in history a group of Catholic conspirators attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and splatter the brains of King James VI, who was a Protestant.

The moral of this history lesson is that old school 17th century Catholics were pyromanics and most likely alot cooler that you.
