Warm as Toast

I thought it was appropriate for today, November 5th - because this is the day in 1605 when Guy Fawkes was captured, sealing the fate of those who had conspired to blow up Parliament in the so-called Gunpowder Plot .
Nowadays not many people celebrate this at home, due to "Health and Safety" concerns, and also legislation surrounding the sale of fireworks, so there are a number of community displays around the country.
One bonfire in Ripon, near York where Fawkes lived, allows locals to vote on the "Guy" who will be burned on the fire. This article explains whose effigy they are burning this year.
