because it's anti-Catholic and encourages yobbos to go around begging for money and lighting fires.

To to mention the fact that people, even children are having FUN. Which should of course be banned.

Kids should never have fun because it might offend certain people. Christmas should deffo be banned innit.

FUN?! Fucking FUN?!
Who do you think you are OP. I just bet you enjoyed typing out that post didn't you? SHAME!!!

Ban mince pies as well. Mince pies are cunts.

It is ducking, yes. As evidenced by Monty Python and a witch weighing the same as a duck or something.

We had a bonfire party here in Sweden and invited all our neighbours, who promptly asked us what it's all about. I was like 'erm, well, this bloke got caught trying to kill the king who, by all accounts was a bit of a bastard. So he was tortured and killed and then a law came in forcing the populace to light fires to celebrate the fact that the king survived. Even though everyone hated him. But they quite liked the bonfires. So now we still do it because change takes time and it's only been 400 years.'

Are you having a laugh? Last time they banned mince pies we had civil war. Literally. That's why the monarchy was restored, cos Cromwell banned mince pies.

Fireworks are banned in Ireland? Well bugger me.

ScabbyOozingCarbuncle Tue 22-Oct-13 21:43:53

And Baileys. Im certain Cromwell banned Baileys too!

AnaisHellWitch Tue 22-Oct-13 21:45:24

Are we banning Christmas as well? Whoever started all that shit should be nailed to a tree! Same goes for the bastard who invented Easter.

ScabbyOozingCarbuncle Tue 22-Oct-13 21:46:21

Didnt Jesus invent easter? hmm

IHatePingu Tue 22-Oct-13 21:46:56

We always go to the display at the Catholic school near us. confused

...No chance Cromwell, victory will be mine,
You'll never pass a ban on mince pies and mulled wine.

Gah, anybody else singing the Horrible Histories song now?

AnaisHellWitch Tue 22-Oct-13 21:54:48

He certainly had a lot to do with it Scabby. It was a joke. This is a jokey thread smile

ScabbyOozingCarbuncle Tue 22-Oct-13 21:57:26

I was joking too! blush Everybody knows that kinnerton invented easter!

sweetkitty Tue 22-Oct-13 21:58:28

Fireworks are so expensive, I always wonder how the local ned population can afford to launch 4 million of the buggers in the 2 weeks before and after Bonfire Night.

AnaisHellWitch Tue 22-Oct-13 21:59:08

I didn't blush will look it up!

WestieMamma Tue 22-Oct-13 21:59:56

Lets just ban kids then? They force us to give then fun.
Cost us too much money, and enjoy themselves too much.
