In Case You Forgot

Though I'm sure you didn't. Right?

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!

I remember, moving here to the States I don't miss the kids knocking on the door "Penny for the guy".

Of course the trick or treaters make up for it!

Hahaha... I'd like to see people's faces if you started going around asking for a penny for the Guy in the US. I'd also like to see the police response time.
