How to pretend you know things about ‘Game of Thrones’

Even if you haven’t seen an episode of Game of Thrones (because you are an adult and can’t be bothered with infantile displays of dragons or fantasy lands), it is important to stay #relevant. Thus, here is a list of talking points to make it seem as if you are keeping up with the times, or shall we say thrones.

  1. Weather

What do people talk about when they don’t have anything else to say? The weather! The upcoming season of GOT is called “Winter is Here,” so you can be sure that the show will be full of snow. Trick people into thinking you watch “Game of Thrones” by saying “Burr! Sure is cold in “Game of Thrones!” Wouldn’t want to be caught in that snowstorm, am I right?”

  1. Thrones

Even if you’ve never seen an episode of “Game of Thrones,” the title includes the word “thrones,” so you know some fancy chairs are involved in this program. Try fooling people into thinking you’ve seen GOT by saying, “Acquiring thrones are certainly a power move in this program!”

  1. Nudity

Even if you’ve never seen this show, you’ve probably heard that nudity plays a big part in GOT, mainly people getting all riled up because nudity is scandalous. Participate in “Game of Thrones” conversations by saying “Aren’t the bodies in this program so nude?”

  1. Dragons

Dragons are in this show, so comment on a feature of dragons in order to deceive people, “The dragons on this show are so scaly and so aerodynamic. Wow!”

  1. HBO

“Game of Thrones” is featured on HBO, which stands for “Home Box Office,” an uncommonly known fact, so relay this information by saying, “You know, ‘Game of Thrones’ is featured on HBO, which stands for Home Box Office.”

You are now in the Game of Thrones Squad. #winterishere
