Honestly, I wouldn't have fared that much better.
(Reddit via Sepinwall)
"Mercenary who gives wishes"... he's like a genie!
Did I miss the spoiler edition for the final Game of Thrones episode?
KING OF THE GUYS.
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.
I read "Tyrion's Bodyguard" as "Tyrion's Boyfriend". I can see either frankly.
Thoros of Myr? I'd say Oskar Schindler right off the bat.
My husband calls Melisandre "Dusty Smokevag."
That's close to my husband's nickname for her: "Smoky Vagina Lady."
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.
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.
"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.
"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.
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.
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.
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.
I love this the most of all today."King of the Guys." *snort*
But, but...the dad missed some easy ones - no Arya, no Jon?
Not all of the images are above, follow the source link it has the complete set - http://imgur.com/a/11bIw
Thank you! That's hilarious. Now all the need is to show the dragons and have him name them Smaug, Eragon and Trogdor.
"King of the Guys."
The best one HAS to be "Grandmother of Boobs Girl"
Ok that geeked me out pretty hard
I'm always going to refer to these characters with these names now. Ygritte will forever be Hilda? Always spoken like a question.
I don't know why, but that one made me really laugh out loud.
Long-lost relative of Egg...Ann...Her?
This is great, It's missing a few of the best ones though. Make sure you guys seek out the full thing.
big dick podrick
How the FUCK do you get Hodor Wrong?
Well, to be fair, he's just looking at photos, not sound bites.
(translated as: I know, right? Hodor.)
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.
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?"
"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."
I get alot "the one with the beard". Seriously. Saying "the one with the penis" will at least eliminate Theon...
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."
He did better than I would have.
King of the Men, more like.
I prefer Shae the funny whore.
"Oh, that's the bastard." snerk.
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
"Grandmother of Boobs Girl" is my favorite.
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.
