Getting Jacobean With Your Ass

A number of American readers have asked me, a propos of my earlier ruminations on Trick-or-Treat, just what this November 5th Bonfire Night thing is that we Brits get so excited about. In the spirit of transatlantic education, I offer this link showing a typical British Guy Fawkes night being celebrated in traditional Jacobean fashion (hat-tip to the estimable Mr Arthur Clewley). Children: do not, under any circumstances, try this at home.

If this isn't natural selection at work, I don't know what is!

Just making an inspection of your blog on behalf of the IBA - International Blogging Authority. You pass most of the literacy tests but in the field of imagery your score is at the baseline I'm afraid. You are hereby instructed by the inspectorate to commence the insertion of pictures or risk losing your bloggers' licence.
