I wonder if Guy Fawkes and Judas are one and the same

An interesting Easter time tradition here in Brazil is the "Judas Doll". A dummy (a doll, not the village idiot) is dressed up and people in the neighborhood beat on it with sticks, stick firecrackers in him, and sometimes light him up. A lot like I figure Guy Fawkes day must be like. I saw two on my street yesterday when I took the dog out for a walk.
