remember, remember the 5th of november

Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta is one of my top favorite comics of all times. i’m celebrating today by watching V for Vendetta, with one of my favorite actresses, Natalie Portman. most memorable of the story is of course:

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
