Cersei’s obsession with Elephants has resulted in some hilarious jokes by Game Of Thrones fans

[Spoiler Ahead] Twitter was amused by Cersei’s demand for elephants

The premiere of Game of Thrones Season 8 was more of a warmup for fans. But Cersei’s disappointment over the lack of elephants in her mercenary army set some Twitter users into another kind of warmup- a train of Cersei memes.

In the episode, Cersei had sought a mercenary army from the Golden Company. She managed to hire them with all the gold that she sacked from invading the Highgarden in the previous season. On her orders, Euron must have travelled to Essos to ferry the Golden Company,  and their reported war elephants.

In the books the tale is quite different. The Golden Company was said to be founded by a Targaryen bastard which makes them loyal to the Targaryens above everyone else. We’ll have to wait to see who they pledge their allegiance to finally on the show.

For now, here are some of the best reactions to Cersei Lannister’s unwarranted demand for elephants on water…

For a cunning Queen, Cersei sure had a dumb moment there

 

Some instantly created crossovers and reminded us of recently released Disney movie Dumbo

These Twitter users think Cersei is a diva for wanting the enormous mammals

Even actor Kunal Nanjiani took to Twitter to take a dig at the ill-fitting Cersei dialogue

When it comes to Euron pleasing Cersei

This season better answer some of our burning questions

And what’s a GoT meme if it doesn’t make fun of HBO’s budget

“Tell Cersei it was me” memes made a comeback as well

Thankfully, with just one significant death in the first episode, fans could rejoice and indulge in humour. For they know what kind of gore awaits them in the upcoming episodes.

Jimmy Kimmel gives Jaime Lannister his own spin-off with Full House

Game of Thrones is over, but we still have those prequel spin-off shows coming up. However, there’s a catch, these shows won’t star any of the actors from Game of Thrones. However, Jimmy Kimmel has his own solution for this, and he has done that by putting Jaime Lannister in the Full House universe. Read on!

Full House, for those that don’t know, was a popular sitcom that ran from 1987 to 1995, starring legendary actors like Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and John Stamos. This spin-off skit that debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! has Jaime Lannister join the Full House family, replacing John Stamos’ Uncle Jessie, with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Uncle Jaime. Called Full House Lannister, this wouldn’t be a bad spin-off for Jaime, definitely better than dying with Cersei was:

Cut. It. Off. Hilarious. Anybody who loved Full House and Game of Thrones will definitely love this one. On a related note, it would be great if Netflix’s sequel of Full House, called Fuller House, could bring Nikolaj in for a guest role.

Game of Thrones fans react to Bran Stark becoming King

Game of Thrones has always been about who ends up on the Iron Throne, and in the series finale — Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we got to see the Iron Throne melted down by Dragon fire.

However, we did get a new ruler for Westeros, one who was selected by all the important lords and ladies of Westeros — Bran Stark. This came out of nowhere for most fans of the show, who were expecting Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen to end up on the throne. The fans took to Twitter with a variety of reactions:

Emilia Clarke had a hilarious response to the Game Of Thrones Starbucks cup gaffe

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 had several awe-inspiring moments to be sure. But the one that hogged all the limelight was a Starbuck cup sitting pretty in front of Daenerys Targaryen on the Winterfell high table. Fans have been pointing to Emilia Clarke as the Mother of the Starbucks Gaffe. Emilia finally addressed those accusations on Thursday and promptly passed up the blame to – wait for it – Jason Momoa!

Yep, that’s right. Khal Drogo was supposedly passing by Winterfell and sneaked in to mark his presence on the screen!

Here’s Emilia’s Instagram post ‘explaining’ the situation. Her caption read: “Did I just stumble upon the truth here?! The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea… oh and this ain’t a spoiler just a lost wanderer coming home for a mid-filming cuppa”.

The picture shows Emilia holding a Starbucks cup and posing with Momoa and Peter Dinklage. Emilia is trying to pass off herself as the mere ‘cupbearer’ and implying it was Momoa who was actually drinking from that infamous cup when he visited the set.

The cup, in reality, was not even from Starbucks and was soon removed from the frame. But that didn’t stop everyone from making some hilarious connections. HBO offered a funny response saying: “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered a herbal tea.” Liam Cunningham (who plays Davos Seaworth on the show) brought a Starbuck cup to his interview on Conan, and claimed it found its way there “probably because Emilia drinks too much coffee.”

But now the Mother of Dragon has spoken, and have absolved herself of any blame in the whole matter. All of us plebs can go home now!
