  1. One of my absolute favorite movies! As close to reality as it could possibly be.

    The Fifth of November

    Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.
    Threescore barrels, laid below,
    To prove old England’s overthrow.
    But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
    With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
    A stick and a stake
    For King James’s sake!
    If you won’t give me one,
    I’ll take two,
    The better for me,
    And the worse for you.
    A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
    A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
    A pint of beer to wash it down,
    And a jolly good fire to burn him.
    Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
    Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
    Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

    1. “A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,…”

      Now THAT I can get behind.


    1. Every Nov. 5th, without fail… and in between as well, Joe.

      Sans (currently MIA here) the outright revolution (inevitable) portrayed , I consider it to be as much a documentary as ‘They Live’.

      1. That’s why we can’t see none of them space aliens. We don’t have none of them Roddy Piper sunglasses.

        1. We can’t see them because most of the time they’re hiding in their mansions.

          But we do have photos of the stinking scumbags.
