Remember, Remember… Anonymous Celebrates the 5th of November
November 5 is a very special day for Anonymous, for this year Guy Fawkes Day and Caturday coincide. Guy Fawkes Day is the British fireworks holiday appropriated by Alan Moore in the 1982 comic V for Vendetta, which was made into a movie in 2006, which in turn inspired the iconic mask used by the group. Caturday is the celebratory day of the lolcat. This is like Kwanzaa, Yom Kippur, Easter, and Arbor Day all rolled into one for the people of lulzy collective.
Anons the world over are celebrating by drinking, watching V for Vendetta, crying over how cute kitten pictures are, and posting pages and pages of famous peoples’ personal data all over the web. On Tumblr, the Anonymous group CabinCr3w released information on a number of public figures including former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, noted conservative donors the Koch Brothers, Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York, Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant, and finally for the lulz, Jesus himself.
