Saturday’s GoT Laughs: The cat and the maiden fair

Okay, so here’s the cat; someone sampled their cat’s meowing and composed the opening theme out of it:

Don’t play it on repeat, it gets annoying in my experience.

And the maiden fair is Brienne the Beauty, a nice mashup of South Park and GoT from the sarcasmismylanguage tumblr:

Speaking of mashups, some wonderful art by bubug, laden with symbolism: The Lannister Family!

  • Love the Lannisters photo, the arrow in Tyrions hand is quite nice but can’t seem to figure out who the hunchback person is holding the skull???

  • MATTHEW,

    Only if you already know what they are ;)

    The disgraced Maester Qyburn with Gregor’s head.

  • A dead bird spiked on Joffrey’s crown? That’s the one I’m missing … (spoiler mark, please).

  • That Lannister portrait is awesome, Kudos! Love the touch of Jaime holding the sword with his left hand, while his right, mimicking “Thing” is on the shoulder. Myrcella looks so cute, and Tommen holding the cat (nice touch). Obviously this is book version, because of Tywin’s whiskers and Tyrion’s but ugly vistage, perfect all around. Loved Cersei’s cold beauty and Joff’s douchbag smirking expression.

  • The Lannister portrait has been my desktop wallpaper since I first saw it on io9. I love all the (spoilery) touches.

    Like Tommen and his cat!

  • If Qyburn and Ser Robert Strong are allowed in the family portrait, why not Shae wearing the Hand necklace? Why not Uncle Kevan with a spider crawling up his chest or something?

    I am guessing Qyburn

  • In the Lannister drawing, woman noticed that Jaime is looking at Cersei, but she is looking straight ahead. Interesting.

  • Hear Me Roar:

    Doesn’t it represent Sansa Stark, the “little bird” according to the Hound, and her suffering at his hands? ? That was my first though, anyway.

  • Or maybe the dead bird has something to do with the pigeons in his wedding cake, although I can’t quite make the connection.

    The Artist said when asked-

    Little stuffed bird on the crown (mayby a cat toy stolen from Balerion) is just an indication of Joffrey’s weird, sadistic sense of humor, thankfully

  • I’m surprised, for the Lannister picture, nobody mentioned the disembodied right hand on Jaime’s shoulder. Another nice little bit of foreshadowing.

  • ANiceChianti,

    I was thinking that was supposed to be the mean cat that Arya chases, and that Tommen comments on later (that some imaginative readers have argued is actually Balerion, Rhaenys Targaryen’s cat – perhaps more wildly that she’s warged into it permanently). Though this cat does seem to have both eyes, so maybe not.

  • As for the dead bird on Joff’s crown, this is what the artist said it was supposed to mean…

    “the little stuffed bird on the crown (mayby a cat toy stolen from Balerion) is just an indication of Joffrey’s weird, sadistic sense of humor, thankfully”

  • Mrs. H’ghar,

    That’s really the thing that strikes me most in this picture… most of the details are little hints, but that really in a nutshell explains their whole relationship. The fact that the artist made it clear so subtly shows their remarkable talent and understanding of the series. Just brilliant. I love our fandom, ASOIAF fans are the best :)

  • I think the guy with the skull probably represents Kevan, because he dies. Perhaps holding the skull represents he brought it on himself?

  • what a lazy meow cat! :)
    Love South Park Brienne and Lannister´s hideous cat. Really, they are the Adam´s family.

  • Kualan: Doesn’t it represent Sansa Stark, the “little bird” according to the Hound, and her suffering at his hands? ? That was my first though, anyway.

    I thought that too, but it appears not.

    And oh my the dog response to the cat! Ha ha !

  • I know this is off topic…. Do you think we will see The Red Viper in Series 3? He is like my favorite Dorne character, and I think he is awesome! Opinions?

  • Where can I get that as my ringtone. That will totally annoy the crap out of people! That cat is gorgeous!

  • The Adams poster is amazing. And like the Sansa one, so rife with poetically executed hidden meanings! ahhhh… Hats off to the artist.

    Don’t have the stomach to listen to the cat song, though.

    Someone on IMDB who is supposedly up for a smaller part did say that the RV was being auditioned for but there is no proof and the poster could just be making things up.
