Professor Has To Explain To College That 'Game Of Thrones' Will Not Shoot People With Fire
Did you watch that video above? Were you terrified and threatened? Did you think a character from a teevee show would show up and murder you with fire from guns? Did you feel like you should go murder with fire from guns? Probably not! But you can never be too careful.
[Bergen Community College professor] Francis Schmidt posted to Google+ a cute picture of his young daughter wearing a Game of Thrones t-shirt in a yoga pose next to a cat. The t-shirt [bore] the phrase "I will take what is mine with fire and blood," a quote from Daenerys Targaryen, a fictional character in a series of fantasy novels (which has sold tens of millions of copies) turned into a hot TV series on HBO (with close to 15 million viewers per episode.)
That does not sound terrifying to us! That sounds like Professor Schmidt is kinda a Game of Thrones devotee, which may or may not be your cup of tea, but otherwise no big deal, really. Nuh-uh, said an HR person, the Executive Director of Overreacting to Shit at Bergen.
