The Official Game of Thrones Twitter Wants You to Roast Joffrey
How many times have you been watching Game of Thrones and thought, “Boy, I’d like to give that punk Joffrey a piece of my mind!”? Well, here’s your chance! The Game of Thrones official Twitter account has started a new hashtag called #RoastJoffrey, which they are declaring is, “A disrespectful celebration of his grace and the world's 1st social media comedy roast.”
While we think it’s probably unlikely that this is the first-ever social media comedy roast, we still think it’s an awesome idea. Seriously, nothing brings people together like making fun of one of television’s most vile characters. Below is a sampling of some of our favorite efforts so far. Feel free to add your own in the comments!
@streetseidell: "King Joffrey's family is so inbred that they can't even spell Jeffrey right. @GameOfThrones#RoastJoffrey"
@baltes: "#roastjoffrey I haven't seen a kid that out of control since Lord of the Flies."
@funnyparadox: "When you're having a bad day, just remember: Joffrey has two dads, and still nobody loves him. #RoastJoffrey @GameOfThrones."
And a shameless plug from the author:
@johnnybrayson: "I bet Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz would like Joffrey. She's into heartless, brainless cowards #RoastJoffrey."
