Game of Thrones is definitely not a show that inspires much laughter from its viewers. After all, what's funny about gore, rape, incest, murder, and all of the other nasty stuff that the show is famous for?  While that sort of brutal subject matter is definitely entertaining, it's not really funny.

Yet just as with anything else, you can trust the internet to find the humor in just about anything, even blood, guts, and hateful characters!  There's just something therapeutic about making fun of heavy subject matter. This image gallery contains 15 of the funniest Game of Thrones-themed memes to have hit the web so far. Enjoy!
