HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, full of nudity and gratuitous sex, uses a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show. On the season one DVD commentary, the show’s creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explained that one of the heads, decapitated and piked by King Joffrey, looks a lot like George W. Bush.The Right-Wing is in full outrage mode and calling for a boycott of the show.
Benioff and Weiss have issued a statement:
After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush.
In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have.
Ya think? No one would have noticed if not for the DVD commentary.
Only those on the Right who condemned Ted Nugent’s comment that Obama should “Suck On My Machine Gun,” have earned the privilege to complain about the Game of Thrones incident. That would be nobody.
