The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


Virtual Bonfire Night …

It’s the 5th of November.

The day – back in 1605 – some people tried to blow up the houses of parliament.

And failed.

And how do we celebrate this occasion?

By blowing up fireworks.

Does that seem a little strange to you?

It’s like celebrating losing the lottery by burning all your cash.

But anyway, this year it’s going to be a lot quieter thanks to our friend, Covid, so because I am going to be leaving these shores again sometime in the next few months, I thought I’d let you all imagine a time where we were all allowed to go outside and shout “Ooooooh” and “Ahhhhh” at fireworks while burning our mouths on crappy hot dogs that are at 10,000 degrees centigrade and burning our hands on even crappier sparklers.

FOR TEN HOURS.

You’re welcome.

49.9% of America seem to be pyromaniacs.
Or I hope it’s 49.9%

I thought Biden’s speech was great. Most presidential thing I’ve heard in the last 4 years.

10 minutes of fireworks is normally my limit so you have created a new form of torture.

Comment by George

I love someone made this.
I hope it was to take the piss rather than them really loving fireworks. Ha.

Comment by Rob

thats such a fucking campbell statement.

Comment by andy@cynic

100% Rob.

Comment by DH

If tonight is quieter, it will be because of a general trend in that direction. Yes there’ll be a lack of public displays, but you’ve been able to buy explosives for weeks now and I fear Rosie is not going to be happy.

fucking hell doddsy, you sound like a presenter on songs of fucking praise

Comment by andy@cynic

Harsh but true.

Comment by John

I’m guessing song of praise is a religious show. Not because of the name, but because of how John’s comment reads.

Comment by DH

I am so glad Andrew is not running for president. He would likely get in.

Comment by George

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Ye shall know them by their frameworks. Do planners gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

Comment by John

you sound like a planning prick from ogilvy.
