Remember, Remember the Fifth of November

Remember Remember

Today is Guy Fawkes day. On this day in 1605, Fawkes was arrested for attempting to blow up King James I of England and members of both houses of Parliament. Made immortal in geekdom by the movie “V for Vendetta” and perpetuated thanks to the mask-wearing of Anonymous, the date will always be associated with this poem:

Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot;
I see of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
