Dubya and Bonfire Night


If you know nothing about the British Holiday of “Guy Fawkes Day and Bonfire Night,” you may learn more here. If you have a short attention span and want the abbreviated version, our cousins ‘cross the pond make an effigy of this butthead named Guy Fawkes, and burn it amid merriment and fireworks.

I’m pretty sure we Americans are way too apathetic (or paranoid) to get something like “Dubya Day and Bonfire Night” going here, but I like the idea. After all, Guy Fawkes’ nefarious doings pale in comparison to Dubya’s.
