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?

HBO’s "Game Of Thornes" To Feature Multiple Gay Characters – Watch The Video Teaser

Gay Geeks Rejoice!

In the upcoming epic drama Game Of Thrones, based on the George R. R. Martin fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire premiering on HBO April 17th , ology.com reports that the series will feature multiple gay, lesbian and bisexual characters, and those characters’ sexuality will be clearly visible.

By the third episode in the shows ten-episode first season, viewers will recognize that the Knight of Flowers, Loras Tyrell, and King Robert Baratheon’s youngest brother, Renly, are both gay and in a same-sex relationship.

Other gay, lesbian, and bi-sexual characters also populate the land of Westeros, including The Red Viper of Dorne, who gets outed as a bisexual character.

The shows executive producer and writer D.B. Weiss being on HBO gives the Game of Thrones  opportunities to show the complete picture of each character –– including their sexuality –– in a way that wouldn’t necessarily be possible elsewhere and that the shows second season, which is based on the series’ second book, will see the characters in even bigger roles than the first season.
