There’s one hell of a dragon egg hidden in Game of Thronesseason 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.

Full story.

    And yet, conservatives still give HBO their money (for shows like this), excusing things like Bill Mahrer…

    Hey, what’s the big deal?

    It’s not like they put crosshairs on a campaign map or anything, because we all know that’s way over the line and inciting violent and uncivil behavior…

    Somehow I think that putting our Nobel Joke, uh, I mean Prize -winning president’s head on a pike in a popular cable TV show would be *completely* different! (And *racist*, too!)
