HBO Apologizes For Using Severed George W. Bush Head On A Stick In ‘Game Of Thrones’ (Why?)

A  prosthetic George W. Bush head was used as a prop in beheading scenes on the hit HBO fantasy series Game Of Thrones.

The head became “known” when series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss  pointed it out in the Game Of Thrones Season One DVD boxed set when commenting on a scene from Episode 10 where the Bush head in a filthy long wig and covered with mud is one of several positioned on spikes when King Joffrey (Jack Gleason) takes Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) to show her the severed head of her father. “The last head on the left is George Bush,” the two say. “George Bush’s head appears in a couple of beheading scenes. It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever heads we had lying around…”

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and HBO have  issued apologies following the cltuching of pearls and the gnashing of teeth by Republican leaders

Who knew that good ole Dubya gave good head?
