Gleeful English mob all set to burn 30-ft effigy of Lance Armstrong11/1/2012
When people are delightedly announcing their plans to to burn an imposing 30-foot effigy of you, you know you've hit a new low — if that's possible for Lance Armstrong. As per their annual Guy Fawkes bonfire night celebrations, the pyromaniacs of Edenbridge, Kent, in England will be setting fire to a likeness of the disgraced American cyclist this Saturday night. Thousands will watch as the fireworks-filled figure of Armstrong is ignited, making the ex-Tour de France champion part of a proud tradition that's seen Russell Brand and a prime minister's wife go up in smoke. Armstrong was the pick of a short list of infamous folks, a selection that people can actually bet on legally in merry ole 'burn ‘em all' England. He was the odds-on favorite. [Source]
