UK Protestors involved in the London version of the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement were today in disarray upon being confronted by a member of the public who claims to have a C in GCSE History.
The history buff in question is alleged to have pointed out to protestors, many of whom were wearing a mask based on a film of a comic book which sort of features a stylised version of the Guy Fawkes story, that Guy Fawkes was ultimately caught, tortured and executed after completely failing to achieve his goal.
Murmurs of discontent rippled through the assembled crowd, with some protestors expressing sentiments such as "That isn't what I signed up for", "I only bought it because I enjoyed the film", "Who's Guy Fawkes?" and "Does anyone know the way to Comic Con?"
Many members of the crowd appeared confused when it was explained to them that by purchasing their masks, they were inadvertently supporting the very capitalist system they were protesting against. Further confusion was caused by a second passer by, who shouted that the masks were made of plastic derived from the ‘evil petrochemical industry and their proxy wars across the globe’.
As silence descended, a solitary whoop from one smartly attired bank employee broke into a roar of laughter emanating from the surrounding glass and steel buildings, as the financial services sector collectively pointed and laughed at the poorly educated, unwashed underclass’s poor grasp of history. Some executives were seen to briefly ‘high five’ one another in a display of Oxbridge educated, testosterone laden jubilation at another victory over the little guy, before settling back to buying and selling things that don't actually exist.
