Torture Didn't Even Work On Guy Fawkes

Cop a clue, torture lovers.

Funny thing about torture...

When James I issued the order to torture Guy Fawkes, Fawkes only gave up the names of conspirators who were either already dead or already known to authorities.

Another clue for the clueless: Who's remembered and celebrated on this day? The torturers or the tortured?

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

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, twas his intent,
To blow up the King and parliament,
Three score barrels were laid below,
To prove old Englands' overthrow
By Gods mercy he was catched,
With a dark lantern and a lighted match!

Holla Boyes, Holla Boyes,
Let the bells Ring!
Holla Boyes, Holla Boyes,
Hip, Hip, Hip, Hooray!

A penny loaf to feed old Pope,
A farthing cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to rinse it down,
A faggot of sticks to burn him.

Burn him in a tub of tar,
Burn him like a blazing star,
Burn his body from his head,
Then we'll say old Pope is dead!


Yeah, that was then (1605).

Today would be a good day to watch V For Vendetta...

And remember.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
Judges 16:19--

Well, Guy was made of tough stuff. The total wimps of this world will tell their torturers anything, but that also proves your point. I'd probably give them my grandmother's vanille kranse recipe (it would do them more good than anything else I could tell them, and those cookies always cheer me up), the names of everyone who ever looked at me cross-eyed, and I'd make damn sure to state clearly that Rick Santorum, Dick Cheney, and Jenna Bush were part of Satanic sexual gang selling secrets to Osama Bin Laden and trying to bring about the downfall of the U.S.
