It seems like only yesterday… The world that was. Before civilization crumbled. It started quietly enough and then consumed society. The capitals fell, the economy collapsed and corruption ran rampant. What was once a successful niche fantasy book series called Game of Thrones came to life on TV and took control of the majority. It pulled people in with its fighting, magic and heavily gratuitous shots of boobs, boobs, more boobs and full frontal poon. I knew the obsession and corruption went all the way to the top, and now we have proof.
HuffPo tells us that Kit Harrington, or as some of you may know him, Jon Snow, was on The Tonight Show on Friday and told Jimmy Fallon about a run in with the dark, seedy underbelly of the law. While driving home after visiting his parents, Kit was pulled over by a cop for speeding. This is where things get real and scary. No the cop didn’t make him do sex things. Get your head out of the GoT gutter. No, the cop said to Kit:
He said, ‘Look, there’s two ways we could do this. You can either follow me back to the police station now and I book you in, or you can tell me whether you live in the next series of ‘Game of Thrones.
This officer is clearly someone who is not on the right side of the law. Were it up to him, he’d probably have let off Vanessa Hudgens for defacing that rock if she told him what brand of mascara Zac Efron used circa the High School Musical years. Well, Kit complied and told the officer that yes, Jon Snow was still alive. The cop then went full fan and said ,”On your way Lord Commander. Keep the speed down this far south of the wall.”
I had to stop watching that shit a few years ago because it was too much even for my sick and twisted mind. There’s only so many throat slittings, beheadings and rape one can sit through before it becomes too much. And on top of all that, it’s slower than watching paint dry. It’s like Hostel done by Merchant Ivory. Last week’s Saturday Night Live pretty much summed it up perfectly with their sketch about Jon Snow coming back to life. If you need a GoT fix, here’s Kit on Tonight:
