Fawkes News: Remember, remember to wear your mask!

Remember, remember the Fifth of November. And remember to wear your mask! Your Guy Fawkes/"V for Vendetta" mask, that is.

No, Halloween is not over. You can keep wearing your costume into November, especially today, November 5th, Guy Fawkes Day. It's the trendy outfit to wear to your local Occupy protest. All the cool Guys and gals are wearing it.

And when you walk into your bank today to close out your account, and they look at you a little funny because you're wearing a mask, don't be alarmed, even if you start hearing an alarm! Just tell them you're one of the 99% protesting the evil bankst--uh, well, just tell them you're protesting something.

For the DUmmies, the Fifth of November is a sacred day, because (in their minds at least) it represents SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER, and thus fits perfectly with the OWSie movement. Of course, historically, it represents speaking GUNPOWDER to power, and it also represents an EPIC FAIL. But that doesn't matter. We've seen the Vendetta movie, and it was cool. I feel like such a rebel when I'm wearing my mask!

The original rhyme went:

Remember, remember the Fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason, and plot
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

But for the DUmmies, I'm revising it:

Remember, remember the Fifth of November
DUmb power, seasoned with pot
I'm multitasking
My Guy Fawkes masking
"Occupy" takes Halloween's spot

Several threads to choose from. We'll look at this THREAD, "Remember Remember the Fifth of November," and this THREAD, "BBC: V for Vendetta masks: Who's behind them?" and this THREAD, "Why Guy Fawkes?" and this THREAD, "Remember, remember the 5th of November."

So let us now join the Bonfire of the Primitives, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, remembering the Fifth of November as my late mother's 96th birthday and my daughter's 16th baptismal birthday, is in the [brackets]:

Remember Remember the Fifth of November

[Remember, remember the fifth of tequila . . .]

Idea: Guy Fawkes masks for everyone @ Occupy Wall Street on Nov. 5th

[Yes! That will bring those corporations TO THEIR KNEES!!]

Masks are illegal in NY, you'd be guaranteeing arrest . . .


. . . while benefiting a major corporation. . . . every sale of one of those masks benefits TIME WARNER.

[Double oops!]

Every time an Anonymous protester dons a Guy Fawkes mask, Time Warner goes "ka-ching"

[Warners of Mask Production.]

it was just an idea. apparently, a poorly thought out one!

[That has never stopped the DUmmies before! No, I say GO with the masks! Go with Guy!]

if everyone is doing it, then it being illegal no longer really matters

[Yes! We'll get 99% of Americans to wear their Guy Fawkes™ masks on November 5th, and they can't arrest us ALL!]

You're never going to see that kind of critical mass down there.

[You WILL see a comical mess!]

If they wanted to make the same point while denying TIME WARNER their mask payday, they could use greaspaint--white, pink and black--and pretty much achieve the same effect. . . .

[benburch likes the idea of wearing makeup.]

besides, the whole guy fawkes mask thing is old. A friend of mine, worked as a chaperon at a home coming dance recently, several of the kids there were wearing guy fawkes masks because they thought it "cool". They had no idea other than v for vendetta who guy fawkes was.

[He's just some guy.]

V for Vendetta masks: Who's behind them?

The Chinese can't make them fast enough. . . .

[No fair Peking behind the mask!]

Remember, remember the 5th of November, pull your money out of the Greedy mega bank.

[Be sure to wear your mask when you walk into the bank!]

Why Guy Fawkes?

["Why Guy?" I cry!]

Sure, that's what we want to do: Blow up the president and both houses of Congress, create anarchy, and institute a theocracy.

[Picky, picky, picky. . . .]

The American idolizing of Guy Fawkes that started with the movie "V for Vendetta" is really starting to annoy me.

[Blame the Anonymous annoying-us hacktivists.]

Fawkes is a symbol of one person standing against the system.

[Taking it to THE MAN!]

he was just a pissed off guy. The movie, however, expropriated the image of the pissed off guy and gave it a deeper meaning.

[And thus, Pissed-Off Guy is the PERFECT symbol for the OWSies!]

He is the epitomy of a failure.

[You make my point.]

Happy Guy Fawkes Day! Penny for the Guy!

[Dollars for Time Warner!]

V for Vendetta

[V for Vodka. Remember, remember the fifth of vodka.]

We DEMAND a massive, democratically-controlled public works and public service program, with direct government employment, to create 25 million new jobs at good union wages. This is to be paid for by new taxes on the wealth and income of the rich, on financial transactions, and on corporate profits, by reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall Act, as well as by ending all U.S. wars, disbanding mercenaries, ending aid to authoritarian regimes, and closing overseas military bases. The new jobs will aim to radically expand access to education, healthcare, housing, mass transit, and clean energy – and are to be open to all, regardless of immigration status or criminal record!

"ending aid to authoritarian regimes"

The only part of KIM's temper tantrum, that I might agree to.
Problem is, who gets to define authoritarian?

Oh yeah?

"Bank of America retail customers are the least satisfied among clients of the biggest U.S. lenders...and the most likely to defect...according to a Harris Interactive poll."

"Over 80,000 people are expected to switch banks on Saturday."

Think their all showing up with their scary masks on? Of course you do!

Picture yourself on a boat on a river...

Troggy, are you actually citing an interactive poll to 'prove' a point? Do you have any idea what an interactive poll is, dumbshit?

Are you too busy trying to figure out the difference between "their" and "they're"? Perhaps it's in the same dictionary as "seezing".

Thank goodness for the democrat party. Without it, the stupid and insane would have no representation at all.

I use a credit union, but then I'm obviously way smarter and more aware than the typical [Ipod, Iphone-using, Eddie Bauer-wearing corporate profit generating] Occupier.

Bot BoA has literally millions of accounts. 80,000 will change? And they'll belong to those dweebs? BoA was probably already losing money on them an will be glad to see them go masks or no masks.

Anonymous Anonymous said... did that "ANONYMOUS" attack on go? Yesterday was November 5th, right?

PS. Click on KayInMaine's name for a link to her site. Absolutely hillarious. And for an added bonus, there is a rumor that she and Turd-la-grrrl are related. A rumor I just concocted, but since it is now out there, it must, MUST be investigated until Turd-la-grrrl proves otherwise. That's how it works now, right?

KayInsane - If you are going to label everything Fascist, perhaps you could waddle over to a dictionary and at least learn how to spell it, even if you refuse to leanthe definition. I'm also pretty sure you can't use Fascist as an adverb, either. The dictionary is our friend!

I for Insane!!

Jeez, troggy, it's "Think they're all..." You can do better, just put down that beer.

Hey, here in Milwaukee a OWSer walked into a downtown bank and shouted "This is a hostile takeover!" He wasn't wearing a mask but the bank tellers pressed the alarm anyway---he was promptly arrested, later claiming to the media that his First Amendment rights were violated---apparently you can shout "Fire!" in a movie theater (or a bank) if your motives are noble.

The best thing about the Guy Fawkes masks is they're copyrighted by Time-Warner which gets a percentage of every sale (although I'm sure the Chinese are turning out cheap imitations.

So I take it that we should all go to Zucchini Park and dig for cash buried in tin cans then?

I'll be on the road in an hour....

Yeah, DUmmies and Anonymous idiots! Stand up to corporate greed by protesting while wearing plastic, mass- produced masks made in China by workers operating in slave- labor conditions and distributed as merchandise for a big- budget Hollywood movie!
H for Hypocrisy.
Words cannot describe how lame that movie was.
For all that stupid movie's romanticizing what Guy Fawkes did, the truth is that, contrary to what the movie implied, Fawkes wasn't trying to blow up Parliament in the middle of the night as a harmless political statement; In real life, his plan was to blow up the Parliament building in the middle of the day as a way to assassinate the Protestant King James I and all the members of both houses of Parliament all at once, as part of a larger plot to return England to the days when it was a Catholic theocracy (Which, ironically enough, is the very form of government that the movie portrays as evil incarnate).
There's a reason why in real life, many Brits celebrate Guy Fawkes Day by burning him in effigy.
This is the man you're wearing masks of, DUmmies!
D for DUmmies.
