I’m mixing it up this week with some web gems from HBO shows other than Game of Thrones. Don’t worry though, there are still a few of those as well. Honestly, there’s a never-ending sea of ‘Thrones related material out there. So, it’s kind of hard to not add at least one. Anyways, first up as usua are the videos I found for this week:

Anchor Gets Bored and Starts to Ramble About TrueBlood

On June 14, the host of the Fox News show Studio B, Shepard Smith, seemed to have vampires on the brain while discussing the latest doping allegation against Lance Armstrong. Apparently, Shep Smith was  unimpressed with the story and would rather have been talking blood and not bicycles. At one point during the interview, he actually tells his guest “I wonder if Lance Armstrong is on V”. Pretty funny stuff.

I don’t know why, but I find this really funny. The Arya mouse and Khal Drogo horse have to be my two favorites.
