The Funniest 'Game of Thrones' Memes
Since it's been on the air, Game of Thrones has generated nearly as many memes as character deaths. That's because Westeros is a cruel, but hilarious, place, one where you can orchestrate a massacre and then moments later find yourself on the cover of a fake blockbuster.
From Joffrey Bieber to Red Wedding Crashers, here's a brief rundown of our favorite GoT memes (stay tuned for Season 7 updates):
Ned might have been overly honorable and mostly useless...
... but he lived long enough to become the macro equivalent of an iCal reminder.
In 2013, young Arya became an opponent of Bible studies everywhere, exchanging her sharp Needle for stark skepticism. (Sorry.)
Also, get chicken.
George R. R. Martin published A Game of Thrones in 1996, quickly earning praise for his immersive world-building and gripping storylines. For almost as long, the author's also been known as the Michael Phelps of offing fan faves.
One of the best parts about Game of Thrones is when it turns into a mother-son bonding story, one about a moody kid (Drogon) who just wants to play Grand Theft Auto and roost with his friends at the mall. Unfortunately, he can't -- not until the chores are done. FiGhT fOr Me, DRoGoN. Ugh, fine, Mom!
A traumatic scene that led to hilarious reactions, including the above, which would probably be reviewed like this:
"A heavily plotted romp whose spectacularly choreographed twist will send viewers clamoring for their keyboards." --Variety
"A tour de force." --The New York Times
"For the fans, not the critics." --Thrillist
"For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie," show creator David Benioff said at a SXSW panel this year. Mission accomplished last night, as the English recording artist cameo'd to sing a Storm of Swords-y tune, hang with Arya, and make viewers everywhere go nucking futs.
