Meet the Guy Your Guy Is Named For

The notorious Guy Fawkes was the inspiration for the word guy. But lasting fame didn’t come cheap.

Guy Fawkes Day

Some people celebrate November 5 in honor of British terrorist Guy Fawkes, the Catholic revolutionary who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605.
Nowadays Fawkes is associated with comics legend Alan Moore, whose V for Vendetta has co-opted (or furthered) the Fawkes legend.
