Lance Armstrong Burned in Effigy

Set alight with an effigy of Guy Fawkes


The citizens of Edenbridge, England burnt an effigy of Lance Armstrong during an annual bonfire celebrations in honor of the failed attempts to blow up Parliament in 1604 (via The Daily Mail).

In addition to an effigy of Guy Fawkes, who conspired to blow up Parliament, the people of Edenbridge also choose a celebrity each year. The previous two years, the town chose soccer players Mario Balotelli and Wayne Rooney.
