I cracked up at "Grandmother of Boobs Girl". And Dame Diana Rigg undoubtedly approves.
 
2013-06-13 12:44:49 PM  
This would make a fun game, "Name that GoT character!" Make it even more challenging, give their titles or alternate names. Who is the 'Knight of Flowers?' Or is it 'Knight of Roses?' I forget.
 
2013-06-13 12:51:24 PM  
I wasn't expecting that to be as funny as it was.

And I'd do a little better than this guy's dad, but not much.

Cythraul: This would make a fun game, "Name that GoT character!" Make it even more challenging, give their titles or alternate names. Who is the 'Knight of Flowers?' Or is it 'Knight of Roses?' I forget.


Sunday, when Roose Bolton was talking about Bryndyn Tully escaping, my husband (who didn't read the books) asked me who that was.

Me:  "Catelyn's uncle.  The Blackfish"
Him:  "The Blackfish?"
Me:  "Yeah, the guy w/the big fish on his armor."
Him:  "Oh!  The guy teasing the one who got married last week.  Got it."

There was a certain wisdom in that.

Khal Drogo is, in many ways, "King of the Guys".

Even after reading the books several times, I still don't have them all straight all the time. And then you have someone like Arya who has a list of nicknames and pseudonyms a mile long.

For the record, it's Knight of Flowers, Ser Cythraul.

To be fair, there are a LOT of characters. You have to give credit to anybody who is making an effort to keep them all sorted. IMdB lists 160 characters. You know nothing, grand dad.
 
2013-06-13 03:51:00 PM  
Agreed. Drogo truly was King of the Guys.

I laughed at a few of them but the one that comes to mind is "Hilda?" and of course, because it was stated with confidence, Lord Buccaneer.
 
2013-06-13 03:52:01 PM  
That's far better than I could do.

I love the nicknames for everone but Peter Dinklage.  THAT is how awesome he is.  I am not a huge show fan (i am one of the sad nerds who read the books starting almost 20 years ago), but he was cast brilliantly as Tyrion.

I am worried about the Arya actress.  She looks like she is about to go "girl from that show w/ Fred Savages little brother" within a year or less...
 
2013-06-13 04:09:56 PM  

you are a puppet: Agreed. Drogo truly was King of the Guys.


I never read the book, but that dude from Stargate knocked it out of the farking park in the show. Khal Drogo is the coolest character I've seen on screen in a long time.
 
2013-06-13 04:11:54 PM  
Hahahaha...Ok, now I don't feel so bad. Some of these are pretty close to our house's naming process...except we call the brothel dude "Alabaster Jones" (went on a KOTH re-watch bender recently) and Cersei was "that Keira Knightly-looking chick" for awhile. Arya used to be "Hit Girl". Oh, and my husband called Dany "Dragontitties" for the longest time.

Doesn't Roose Bolton look like Putin?

Nerd Poker w/ Brian Posegn and Friends nails it even better in their discussion of the season finale:

"Triangle Face joined up with Dragon Chick's army. Fat S#!t finally made it past the wall. Fat S#!t also killed Ghost F$#k, or whatever the F$#k. Too bad they gave Giant Tard one of the magic weapons. Cripple and Giant Tard now have magic weapons..."

Ever hear a recording of your own voice and cringe at how you sound?
This seemed so autobiographical of something I would say that I felt embarrassed!

King of the Guys.


I fully agree with that. And I cant tell you how many times I confused Tyrion and Tywin
 
2013-06-13 04:27:02 PM  
I lol'd at "Oh, that's the blacksmith".

Can we change DInklage to "That guy who wasn't In Bruges"?  Because that's what he seems to be best known for to the average American.
 
2013-06-13 04:28:36 PM  
At the least as a man you'd think he'd know the names of the hot chicks. Hilda? Really?

Clash City Farker: Doesn't Roose Bolton look like Putin?


Yeah.  That's why I had a hard time realizing it was supposed to be Roose Bolton on the show when in the books he was described in a way that reminded me of this guy:

Having bailed on the series after 3 episodes, I went through a similar thing. Apart from Drogo (who everyone tells me I look like - in the face; I'm not nearly that buff), nobody has a name. Hell, they introduced 76,000 characters in just those episodes, so everyone had a fun nickname.

My favorites were: Handsome Jack (Incest Lannister), Sister Incest (whatshername Lannister), Flanders (Ned Stark) and his wife Maude, King Hippo, Dick Incest (the guy that gives his sister to Drogo), Khalisi (because she looks like she gets less useless later on), Legs, and The Only One Who Can Swordfight (Anya? Enya? Arya? Stark/Flanders).

Jon Snow and Tyrion are the only characters that seem to have any brainwaves at all (other than MUST BANG A FAMILY MEMBER...seriously. George musta had some kind of weird childhood) - and Snow farking up and goes to the frozen wastelands.

Quick, ask four people that watch the show who "Sandor Clegane" is.

None of them will know.

I cheat, I read the books. He's hoping not to get the back of his head scratched from the other side.
 
2013-06-13 04:37:53 PM  
Good list, although the description of Daario as "Guy who wants to get in Blondy's pants" is probably a little confusing, as that describes pretty much every straight guy on the planet.

Yeah, that one.  Too old to have watched it.  Anyway, Arya in the books is supposed to look almost waif like.  I am afraid Maisie is going to be blessed with so much while other have so little...

Before watching the show a friend said the same thing (you look like khal drago). I figured he was trying to piss me off, now I'm suspicious if he was hitting on me

Also, the kid who plays Bran is definitely hitting puberty. His voice drops a semitone every episode.

"Kick-Ass Girl Stark"

Or perhaps "Stab You In The Neck 7 Times Stark"
