Game of Thrones: Libertarian Edition

Give me liberty or give me dragons.

As HBO's blockbuster series Game of Thrones returns for its seventh season, Reason offers its own freedom-filled parody. A libertarian paradise north of the wall? What's happened to Westeros' social security trust fund? Should it take low-income Dothraki four years to get a hair-braiding license? Watch!

Written and produced by Austin Bragg, Meredith Bragg, and Andrew Heaton. Shot and edited by Bragg and Bragg. Starring Andrew Heaton, Austin Bragg, and Remy.

  • Crusty Juggler - Double Great||

    I just don't understand the obsession with this garbage series.

  • Unlabelable MJGreen||

    There are no garbage series, only garbage people.

  • Longtobefree||

    Are garbage people the ones the dragons eat?
    Or is that the deplorables?

  • GILMORE™||

    only garbage people.

    Its a living

  • Crusty Juggler - Double Great||

    I thought that would be a reference to this, but you have disappointed me once again, Gilmore.

  • GILMORE™||

    We've used the Estevez+Sheen meme for years in a different application

    also, be careful when expressing disappointment in Ike Turner

  • Crusty Juggler - Double Great||

    Again, at this point I know better, but I am once again disappointed with your Ike Turner link.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Said the idiot who is stupid.

  • CatoTheChipper||

    Best libertarian edition ever.

  • Chipper Morning, Now #1||

    I spat smoked salmon and goat cheese at "That's fucked up, Arya."

    This. Was. Awesome. Thank you so much, Andrew. You are the best.

  • GILMORE™||

    smoked salmon and goat cheese

    because cream cheese + capers isn't faggy enough for you

  • pan fried wylie||

    The only Manly Bagel is unsliced and briefly scorched in a fire pit. Acceptable condiments include sweat and blood. If you're already going to fag it up enough to do more than eat raw wheat from a lukewarm rain puddle, fucking elitist.

    on a side note, "Manly Bagel" was my nickname in college.

  • GILMORE™||

    The only Manly Bagel is unsliced and briefly scorched in a fire pit

    i dispute this. the bacon egg and cheese bagel is a working-man's staple in the tri-state area

    *i am a big fan of the lox platter for brunch, but once you're already eating brunch, you've already compromised any claim to manhood and might as well go full-blown bareback gangbang.

  • pan fried wylie||

    Ok, wrapping the bagel in bacon and splattering a few eggs on it before tossing it in the fire is permitted.

  • Chipper Morning, Now #1||

    GILMORE, what did we tell you about using italics.

  • Gozer the Gozarian||

    Which tri-state would you be referring to? This tri-state area's working-man's staple is Taylor Ham, egg and cheese on a hard roll.

  • Chipper Morning, Now #1||

    It wasn't on a bagel. It was on a slice of chia and millet gluten-free bread with some heirloom tomatoes. Delicious.

  • GILMORE™||

    I hope you didn't get any on your pink tutu

  • pan fried wylie||

    pink tofu

    *spits out artisinal chiamulletglutenfree toast*

  • Chipper Morning, Now #1||

    All right, how many are getting a tattoo of a porcupine humping a pile of money?

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    I already had one and this is just a serendipitous moment.

  • Chipper Morning, Now #1||

    Which buttcheek?

  • Crusty Juggler - Double Great||

    Because I am a true libertarian I am naturally opposed to the use of pop cluture (true "libertarian culture," let's say a sweaty, stuttering reading of The Use of Knowledge in Society would be a more prudent device) to sell libertarianism's message, but this parody was excellent. Fine work, Heaton and The Gang.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    10/10

  • Rabbit||

    11/10 (spinal tap)

  • Dillinger||

    the redhead line alone was worth it. the rest was cake.

  • MoebiusStrip||

    Agreed, that line made me chuckle as well.

  • The Last American Hero||

    They had me at Bronn Paul auditing the Iron Bank on the crawler.

  • SamHell||

    Weeener, wiener weiner...

  • Unlabelable MJGreen||

    Excellent timing on the obstruction of justice bit.

  • Hank Phillips||

    Brilliant! Thoroughtly delightful. Makes me even happier never to have squandered a penny or a minute on the goibitch.

  • ToCa81||

    That was surprisingly funny.

  • Nick W B||

    That one is kinda cheating as the series itself is already pretty libertarian, especially the books. Even if George RR Martin claims to be a progressive liberal.

    I mean there is a whole developing subplot involving the implications of the growing debt crisis the crown faces.

  • SomeGuy||

    this is honestly the only video heaton has made that was enjoyable.

    I find most of his stuff stupid compared to Remy.

  • Butler T. Reynolds||

    That's because you like your humor set to music, like Sesame Street.

  • Butler T. Reynolds||

    That was so awesome, even Howard Roark laughed.

  • Buddy Bizarre||

    I was pleasantly surprised at how amusing this was. He may have a bright future ahead of him since the end of "The Independents".

  • Mike d||

    Lol, that was funny.

    I wonder if Jeofrey (sp?) is going to send massive amounts of raven messages throughout the kingdom everytime he doesn't get his way.

    "The so-called "King" of the North think he's king. Fake King. Sad."

    "the Fake Rumors attack me, saying I am I am inbred by Jamie. Fake Rumors. Sad."

    "The Fake Baratian King tried to attack me. I killed their men and flooded them. Sad. "
