Fun with Captions: 10 GAME OF THRONES Photos from ‘The Lion and The Rose’

If you’re anything like us, you’re likely wont to relive the gloriousness of Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones over and over (and over) again. I mean — and MAJOR SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the episode already — “The Lion and The Rose” FINALLY saw the death of King of the Assholes, Joffrey Baratheon. And what a wonderful death it was (don’t forget to update your fantasy fantasy standings). Serves you RIGHT for being generally and universally The Worst, my king.

Which got us thinking: You, too, likely had some feelings and frustrations to get out on the matter. And so we thought what better way to enjoy reliving that terribly satisfying moment than with a series of humorously captioned photos from the episode? Certainly ours are all right, but we also figured you Nerdist commentators could probably do us one better. So in the spirit of camaraderie and dancing on the dead’s grave, we ask you all to craft a few captions of your own and put them down in the comments. It’ll be fun! Whaddaya say? We’ve posted them all up in a gallery below.

Which photo is your favorite? Got a caption better than one of ours? Let’s hear it in the comments! Winner gets… a real, live double thumbs up from yours truly.

    The wine pouring Pic- Joffrey takes a moment to consider an alternate career path as a hairdresser, seeing an opportunity to add some red highlights into his uncle’s hair. Unfortunately though, he skipped the coloring class in favor of torturing the poor and realized that he was doomed to be a wicked bitch king forever and ever until he drew his last breath. (Or the end of the episode, whichever comes first.)
