Dragon Zach Galifianakis plays Game of Game of Thrones on SNL

Zach Galifianakis graced Saturday Night Live with his manic, bearded hosting skills last night and showed us that it's not easy being green. Or, more precisely, it's not easy being dressed as a green dragon while enduring game show humiliation.

The Game of Game of Thrones sketch pokes fun at fans' encyclopedic knowledge of A Song of Ice and Fire by casting the costumed Galifianakis as a fan who knows everything about Game of Thrones and nothing about anything else. Of course, the highlight is when one of the show's actors makes a cameo appearance.

Anyone felt there was a bit of geek-bashing in this skit? Like a mid 90's Frasier joke of a nerd having wrote the Bar Mitzvah prayer in Klingon. I mean, I know more fans of "Game of Thrones" and the original books who are professionals and could easily answer any of those questions that those who aren't fans and aren't interested in the real world, current events and everything else.

Also, who was the woman in the picture? Sorry, but I'm not American.
