Bonfire, reason, the lot

We had a great bonfire night on Saturday here at Not PC HQ. Despite the best efforts of the wowsers to limit or even ban the sale of fireworks -- and especially of any that make noises any more vigorous than an effeminate 'poof,' we managed to find more than a few that exploded with a loud 'bang,' which pretty much describes how the evening went off.

And unlike the "organised" efforts, ours went off without either mishap or injury. The only serious injuries were to a few sore heads in the morning, and to our Graham Henry guy which was burnt to a cinder. A great night.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,

The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot...

The song I remember from the night went:

Satellite's gone
Up to the sky
Things like the blow me
Out of my mind..

But some bastard was singing it right into my ear. :-/

Lordy, to think they want to take all this fun & frollick with danger away. Next they'll want to ban smacking & handguns.

Great night PC.

Your hot libido comes poring forth in this post PC, you big stud!
...and I suppose if some wayward rocket from a neighboring property were to find it's way to a particularly flammable part of your castle and burn it to the ground, you would obviously just chalk it up to freedom 'n fun right!

The fun & freedom would be in returning fire, ravishing their women, selling their children into slavery and then dancing naked over their graves every solstice intoxicated by ego & moonlight.

Haven't you read anything on capitalism? Lordy!
