The creators of Game of Thrones have apologized for using George W. Bush’s severed head as a prop on the HBO show.
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss issued a statement explaining that they “use a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show” and “can’t afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes where we need a lot of them, so we rent them in bulk.”
This means that there are so many severed heads of George W. Bush floating around out there that when a show like Game of Thrones needs to behead someone in every second shot and are forced to use random heads just lying around, they just end up in the mix.
Where are all these Bush heads coming from? Is someone at the prosthetics plant just maniacally making hundreds of these heads and shipping them to TV shows? Why aren’t we seeing Bush on more shows, like CSI or Two and a Half Men?
In fact, why stop with TV? If there are so many Bush prosthetics lying around, let’s get them out to teaching hospitals, use them as crash test dummies, send them to Japan to be turned into bizarre robots. And really, isn’t the best justice for the reviled ex-president to be turned into a robot butler? They could even buy one for the White House.Chicago Tribune
