Daenerys Targaryen frees slaves, is rewarded with...pizza?

You know what's better than taking your rightful place on the Iron Throne? Tomato sauce, covered in melted cheese on baked dough. Duh.

Game of Thrones is a great show. It may be the best show on television right now, in fact. But it is a major bummer, you guys. That show's narrative lives on the corner of Rape Avenue and Mass Murder Boulevard. Even the non-plot heavy parts sometimes take place in a cul de sac of despair.

Seriously, it can be hard to watch.

But that's why we have ridiculous photoshops and fan edits. They make the pain go away. And, in the spirit of that, I submit Exhibit A -- a scene plucked from the finale of season three wherein Dany has just freed the slaves of Yunkai. They all begin to chant "Mhysa" which is Ghiscari for "mother".

But that word, "mhysa," repeated over and over again, sounds likes a certain actual word -- pizza. And so. And so...fan edit. Because why not?

I share this with you for many reasons:

  1. It's dumb
  2. It's hilarious
  3. It has garnered over one million views in four days.

Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Pizzas -- long may she reign.
