Silence of the Orbits

"So, we're doing this thing for Facegoop on Game of Thrones, but I've never seen it."

"C'est quoi, Game of Thrones?"

"How can you have not heard of Game of Thrones? Really? You really don't know what it is?"

"No. Is it the thing with that famous actor about politics?"

"What? No. Not House of Cards. Have you really never even heard of it? You know, the fantasy thing with bloodshed and dragons and nudity and warring tribes?"

"Oh, the film? Le Seigneur.."

"No. Not Le Seigneur des Agneaux*. GAH! ANNEAUX*. I always do that."

"Seigneur des Agneaux. Ha. Is it the thing with Orbits?"


"Orbits. You know. Little orbits? Little, hairy orbits?"


"Oui. Orbits."

"No. Not the Orbit. Hobbit. This has dragons. Dwarves. Nudity. A big, spiky throne."

"Then .. no."

*Lord of the Lambs

Moi non plus, je ne l'ai jamais regardé. Vous n'êtes pas seules dans votre blissful ignorance.
I also do the anneaux/agneaux thing. But I have seen Le silence des agneaux. Maybe do your Facegoop thing on lambs instead. They are, after all, much more beautiful and softer and goopier than dragons, no?

Ha! Same here. I hate dragons, dwarfs, hobbits and all the like, and i haven't seen any of those films. Nor the Star Wars, by the way.

I love dragons and fantasy things but the more people rave about Game of Thrones the less I want to see it. So starting at Zero Desire I'm nearing -50. Plus I have better things to do, mmhmm.

Same as all of you. But we need to harness the lucrative clickiness of the dwarf/dragon/whatever. So far M and I have coated our faces in mud and M has crouched in a public park. It's going to be special.
