Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned

  • GooniesAndy

    "Mercenary who gives wishes"... he's like a genie!

  • John G.

    Did I miss the spoiler edition for the final Game of Thrones episode?

  • ZestyItalian2


  • DominaNefret

    I think that the thing that amuses me the most about this is that he got Gilly right. He doesn't know Cersei, Margaery, Arya, Littlefinger, etc., but he gets Gilly right?
    I am amused.

  • Mrcreosote

    I read "Tyrion's Bodyguard" as "Tyrion's Boyfriend". I can see either frankly.

  • Ondřej Michlovský

    Thoros of Myr? I'd say Oskar Schindler right off the bat.

  • My husband calls Melisandre "Dusty Smokevag."

  • bonnie

    That's close to my husband's nickname for her: "Smoky Vagina Lady."

  • knifeyspoony

    to be fair, the first guy ("Thorgar") stumped me (I called him "Ginger Raffi") until I went and looked it up. apparently his name is Tormund.

  • RilesSD

    King of the Jon Snows! Perfect. Flea Bottom is the best though.

  • It's so random in its memory figments, so perfect for a watcher who's not overly invested, like all of us. I am a little concerned about Sansa Stark, cuz, well...

  • LORD HOCHSTEIN! How do you even come up with that?

    "Flea Bottom" sent me on the most awesome giggle fit ever. I just kept thinking about poor Davos and how much I love him and that this is what someone remembers about him. Heee!

    I want to do this with my father-in-law. He loves the show, but can never, ever remember any of the names. We have to describe the characters in detail to get him to remember the plots.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    "Lord Weasel". Very fitting.

    The fact the he got both of Joffrey's names right, shows how memorable Gleeson is in that role.

  • Heck, sometimes I forget that Joffrey's last name is Baratheon instead of Lannister and I read the books.

  • luthien26

    "King of the Guys" is definitely my favorite, though followed closely by "Dude. Henry. I don't know." for Varys. :) Also, I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing that I could have named all of them correctly from those pictures.

  • ViciousTrollop

    After the first season I read all of the books. I have no idea who anyone is. I have no idea what is going to happen save for big events like the Red Wedding. It's all just jumbled up in my head and made a big pot of GOT soup.

  • Tinkerville

    Ah yes, GOT soup. Served with a side of horse heart (cooked rare, no exceptions), meat pie -- we promise it's not actually your son LOL, and a robust dash of incest for seasoning. Side effects may include the feeling of your soul being cleft in twane, alcohol dependency, and extreme addiction.

  • PerpetualIntern

    This is exactly my problem too. I think I would've gotten a lot of these wrong and I've read all the books!

  • He pretty much nailed Littlefinger as 'Lord Weasel.' And three seasons in, 'Naked Blonde Dragon Girl' is still the only way one of my buddies remembers who Daenarys is.

  • Jerce

    I love this the most of all today.
    "King of the Guys." *snort*

  • Sara_Tonin00

    But, but...the dad missed some easy ones - no Arya, no Jon?

  • Matt

    Not all of the images are above, follow the source link it has the complete set - http://imgur.com/a/11bIw

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Thank you! That's hilarious. Now all the need is to show the dragons and have him name them Smaug, Eragon and Trogdor.

  • Brooke Michelle

    "King of the Guys."

  • The best one HAS to be "Grandmother of Boobs Girl"

  • Brandon Baehman

    Ok that geeked me out pretty hard

  • Tinkerville

    I'm always going to refer to these characters with these names now. Ygritte will forever be Hilda? Always spoken like a question.

  • Llp


  • BendinIntheWind

    I don't know why, but that one made me really laugh out loud.


  • Long-lost relative of Egg...Ann...Her?

  • Repo

    This is great, It's missing a few of the best ones though. Make sure you guys seek out the full thing.

  • Mr_Grumpypants

    big dick podrick

  • Tri-podrick

  • Steph

    How the FUCK do you get Hodor Wrong?

  • Hodor.

  • BWeaves

    Well, to be fair, he's just looking at photos, not sound bites.

  • Derreck

    Hodor? Hodor.

    (translated as: I know, right? Hodor.)

  • Flor

    At least he didn't call Hodor "Hagrid" as my mom did

  • I'm going to get business cards printed up that has King of the Guys as my occupation.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Half of every conversation I have with non-book readers about the show is "No, the other guy? He was like evil? Come on, the guy!" "......Theon?" "Yeah! I think."

  • "Margaery's the one with the boobs, right? And the gay brother?"

  • Genevieve Burgess

    "I really hate that creepy old dude!" "Which one? You're going to have to be more specific." "The one with the weird family!" "Seriously, give me a shirt color, because THAT'S a better eliminator than 'weird family' on this show." "Black!" "I hate you."

  • koko temur

    I get alot "the one with the beard". Seriously. Saying "the one with the penis" will at least eliminate Theon...

  • Steph

    And Varys.

  • kirbyjay

    you mean "the one without the penis"

  • "Aw! Sansa and Margaery are such good friends! I hope she gets to marry Loras." "Uh... yeah, you'll see what happens."

  • BWeaves

    He did better than I would have.

  • Mrs. Julien

    King of the Men, more like.

  • $27019454

    hot damn

  • John W

    I prefer Shae the funny whore.

  • lowercase_see

    "Oh, that's the bastard." snerk.

  • Natallica

    I can't stop laughing like an idiot and I'm at work. My name as a indie folk one-girl project will definitely be Ms. Wildling

  • PerpetualIntern

    "Grandmother of Boobs Girl" is my favorite.

  • Kit McGee

    I love this. Love it. Love it. Love it. That is all. And a good 1/3 of those I would have guessed the same.
