Brilliant Satire: Reasons to Boycott Game of Thrones

The parody website,, just posted "12 Reasons to Boycott Game of Thrones in 2012," and it's a totally brilliant send-up that I actually thought was for real for a moment. Pretty hilarious stuff. Here's how they sum the show up:

In essence, Game of Thrones is a poorly produced copy of Mel Gibson's Braveheart with a dash of smut straight out of Hustler Magazine added to spice up the frustratingly complicated drama. It can be preachy and pretentious one moment, and decidedly X-rated the next. You will witness effeminate men having sex in bathtubs while speaking about dragons, dead bodies splayed out in satanic pentagrams in the snow and some of the most artificial acting ever broadcast on the small screen.


Probably the best part, though, is the homage to the great Peter Dinklage:

Actor Peter Dinklage, who plays a dwarf on the show, has become the poster child for sodomy amongst America's youths.
