Game of Thrones Fans Unamused by Meme

By Jacob Klein on Jun 3, 2011 to Game of Thrones

Fans of Game of Thrones are just like fanatics of any other sort.  Whether it be your favorite sports team, movie trilogy or your very own hometown, people tend to become defensive over the things they love and enjoy.  So when the so-called ‘Ned Stark is a Dumbass’ meme started making it’s way around the internet, Game of Thrones fans harrumphed like never before.  Please forgive us for perpetuating these images accross the web, it’s Friday and if you don’t get a chuckle out of at least one of these I’m not sure what to tell you.  Take a look at some of the (often amusing) mockups people have made that seem to question the great Eddard Stark’s intelligence.  (Click on the images for a larger version)

There are more but I’m sure you get the idea.  So what do you think?  Is Ned Stark, Lord of Winterfell a numbskull or is he just in over his head?  He was hesitant to go south in the first place, mind you.  But could be playing his cards differently?  Find out at 9PM this Sunday on HBO.
