"Been watching Game of Thrones and I think I've figured out why people like it. It's a medieval fantasy with office politics but they get to stab annoying coworkers."I posted the above as a Facebook status update because I thought it was funny (after all I amuse myself better than anyone else does). But then it occurred to me that posting the phrase 'stab annoying coworkers' on a public site might have unintended consequences. So I deleted it.
I'm posting it here, where I can crack a joke while making it clear that I don't intend to actually perforate anyone. Here, I can provide context, because I can write more than two sentences without people's eyes glazing over. I hope.
In a world where an eight-year-old can be suspended for pointing a chicken finger at someone and saying the word "bang", discretion is the better part of comedy.
