What a Guy!

There are 2 major similarities between Guido "Guy" Fawkes and hipsters:

1.) Fiery socio-political opinions; severe distaste for the wealthy and powerful

2.) Mustaches.

Despite these commonalities, there remains a stark contrast between the two:

1.) Guy Fawkes' extreme opinion actually led him to do something far more productive and memorable than occupy some street with a picket sign.

2.) He looked good in a mustache.

Occupy Wall Street, 2011 A.D.

Remember remember
The 5th of November
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I see no reason
The gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

  1. The funny thing about Fawkes' association with anarchy is that he wasn't an anarchist at all-- he was trying to disestablish the Church of England and re-establish the Catholic Church.
