Keep Your Head In The Game, George

Game of Thrones, that is.  Hey, Westeros is a rough place, no doubt

There's one hell of a dragon egg hidden in Game of Thrones season one. Turns out one of the many heads on a spike decorating King's Landing belonged to ex-president George Bush.

If you keep your eyes peeled when King Joffrey takes Sansa Stark to gaze upon the spiked head of her dead father around 12 minutes in, you'll notice that one of the heads looks slightly familiar. Show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explained in their DVD commentary (from Season 1, episode 10) that the decapitated head is actually George Bush. This was discovered by redditor SidIncognito.

This of course completely blew up in their faces, as the right has now declared war on Kings' Landing and is looking to sack whoever's responsible.  HBO is already heading for the Mud Gate:

We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste. We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this inadvertent careless mistake. We are sorry this happened and will have it removed from any future DVD production.

Silly HBO.  That's not good enough for the Brotherhood Of The Perpetual Victim.

I’ve always said far left progressive liberal Democrats reminded me of Islamic extremists. The only difference is that left wingers never really known for beheading people they disagreed with. Well, even that’s starting to change.

Sure, that's it.  Nobody on Earth noticed until somebody actually bought the DVD of season 1 and listened to the commentary, too.

Somebody's head is going to roll anyway, I'm sure.
