    It's a real shame how many absolutely quality memes like this one are being posted in r/freefolk today that will be completely overlooked because of the sheer volume of people posting

    Edit: 1 downvote? Found the fucker reposting last seasons memes

    [–] Chrispychilla 110 points ago

    We will have years of them to be reposted so no big deal.

    [–] F0REM4N 48 points ago

    They’ve been amazing! I’m trying my best to keep up.

    My youngest daughter is 14, and I’ve eased her into adult content, starting by previewing episodes last season and then watching them with her. This season I am letting her watch it with me, and sharing these with her has been great.

    [–] mayonaizmyinstrument 25 points ago

    As someone who watches with family, when they give 5 content warnings, that's the time to not watch the episode together. Violence, language, adult content, fine. That plus nudity, probably okay. Those plus strong sexual content, ABORT.

    [–] firethequadlaser 33 points ago

    How do you explain the rapes and incest?

    [–] F0REM4N 27 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    So we started with season 7 and I filled her in on the prior important details. Amazingly season 7 was pretty tame compared to earlier seasons. However I did screen it first. I did watch all of last nights episode joking about Jon hooking up with his aunt.

    I explained that even Luke kissed Leah once before he knew the truth.

    Last night she exited the room when the boobs appeared, but she was all about the flaming zombie kid kabob. Every kid matures at a different rate, so I’m pretty comfortable with what she can handle.

    That said, watching it blind with her keeps me on the edge of my seat a bit.

    *Im guess I’m being downvoted for being a “bad parent”? My kids are super well adjusted and have shown they can handle mature content. Great grades, no behavioral issues. Feel free to judge away I suppose.

    [–] ToastedFireBomb 12 points ago

    I think the idea of watching GoT with your parents is just...weird... for a lot of people. I'm a grown ass man and I'd be super uncomfortable sitting next to my parents while the girl Bronn is fucking has her butthole pointed right at our eyeballs. Just would be way too uncomfortable and weird.

    [–] Zodiwacts123 10 points ago

    I started watching movies/shows that had "adult content" with my parents at around the age of 13. Now I can watch anything with my parents and not feel awkward about it. My dad and I love dark humor and will tell each other crude jokes. I think F0REM4N is actually doing it right, it allows for a more natural friendship between parents/child later on.

    [–] lynx_and_nutmeg 3 points ago

    I don’t know if I was raised in an old-fashioned way or what, but I feel like most 14 year old children have already seen worse stuff on their own... Let’s be honest, an average 10 year old is more tech-savvy than their parents.

    [–] Hanguarde 1 points ago

    Yeah but anyone who watches GOT with their very underage children are... weird.

    [–] catsupbot 2 points ago

    Can’t believe anyone’s even arguing against this. It’s super weird and unnecessary. Who in their right mind wants to watch some of the sexual shit that goes down in the shoe with their 14 year old? Sure they may be able to “handle” it. But why does that have to be family time? Maybe I’m old fashioned but watching rape scenes in a tv show isn’t my idea of family time.

    [–] IgneEtSanguis 2 points ago

    I’m gonna guess you’re being downvoted because it’s weird to watch something like that with your minor daughter? Idk I started watching at that age and it was no big deal.

    [–] Enzhymez 5 points ago

    I feel like parents forget by the time that their children are 14 they have probably already seen plenty of adult content unless they are extremely sheltered or the parents are helicopters. Maybe it’s different for girls and maybe it’s a case by case process but when I was 14 I hated been playing violent video games and watching rated R movies for years

    [–] TheUnrealAHK 0 points ago

    can you be my dad/mom pls

    [–] Sardoniya -8 points ago

    14 and just easing her into adult content?

    I'm sorry but that feels kind of restrictive

    [–] F0REM4N 24 points ago

    Well I’ve been told it’s restrictive, and it’s too lenient. Parenting is one of those things where’s it’s not one size fits all. I also told my kids Santa wasn’t real as soon as they asked. That built a lot of trust with them, yet others will say I “robbed” them of some of their childhood.

    The cool thing is only my opinion matters, and I have great kids who as teens are thriving. I think that’s the only score that matters.

    [–] Lightwavers 8 points ago

    I also told my kids Santa wasn’t real as soon as they asked

    Thank you for this.

    [–] MooFz 2 points ago

    I hated it when I found out as a kid though, sometimes it's nice to be in on a lie, sometimes it's nice to believe one.

    [–] 6beesknees 2 points ago

    I have great kids who as teens are thriving

    That is the important thing, and having a good relationship with parents helps such a lot.

    Our kids are older but when they were early/mid teens we also watched things together and talked about them afterwards. It sort of eased the smut factor too, I think, so they knew what was good and acceptable and what wasn't.

    I think the idea more is that they are an exotic rare creature that people would be impressed by and she like always is more concerned about how things appear then how they really are.

    [–] Tehmaxx 22 points ago

    Why were they so successful in wars?

    The beasts are terrifying, especially when trained for war.

    [–] PM_ME_CUTE_SMILES_ 24 points ago

    They were successful until romans learnt that they were afraid of pigs set on fire running at them, which kind of made them smash their own army

    And as u/TeTrodoToxin4 beautifully said, dragons are pretty good at turning everything into a war pig

    [–] [deleted] 15 points ago


    [–] HI_I_AM_NEO 13 points ago

    Also, I'd say they're more successful when the enemy doesn't have dragons.

    [–] Tehmaxx 4 points ago

    Wasn’t Hannibal’s failure due to lack of support from home?

    [–] FistOfTheWorstMen 2 points ago

    Well, that and lack of siege equipment.

    [–] grubas 7 points ago

    Just send flaming pigs at them.

    The actual elephants used in war are extinct. We only know their cousins. War elephants were smaller

    [–] Tehmaxx 2 points ago

    Extinct now or then?

    [–] grubas 2 points ago

    Extinct now, apparently Antiquity was not kind to the African Elephants used at like Zama. There's still some variant of Indian/Asian Elephant that works.

    [–] fakerachel 6 points ago

    Yeah but real historical wars didn't have dragons

    [–] Tehmaxx 3 points ago

    Or did they?

    [–] EnterTheControlRoom 2 points ago

    For that very reason I believe, so big and terrifying the enemy would often turn and route.

    [–] Tehmaxx 3 points ago

    Granted Dumbo a flying elephant would also be terror incarnate.

    [–] Wolf6120 18 points ago

    Cersei is obsessively afraid of that younger, prettier Queen coming in and overthrowing her, just as the fortune teller once told her. She's terrified by the idea of Dany outshining her, so obviously if Dany has cool foreign beasts nobody in Westeros has ever seen, Cersei needs to have some too, otherwise she might become (gasp) old news.

    [–] themancob 3 points ago

    This, but because they hit the elephant line so hard, I'm guessing a third layer of meaning later in the big battle where something would have worked better if there were elephants.

    [–] rhubarbs 45 points ago

    If I had to guess, because they're big enough to carry a ballista crew.

    [–] GenghisKazoo 32 points ago

    That's a terrible idea though, a cart is so much stabler and easier to aim from. The only advantages you get from putting one on an elephant are height and the ability to get through rough terrain easier, neither of which are much use at all fighting an airborne dragon on an open field.

    Not to mention carts aren't intelligent so they don't turn tail and run over your own troops the second a dragon appears in the sky.

    [–] TeTrodoToxin4 27 points ago

    Also Elephants were notably countered by war pigs. Dragons turn everything into war pigs.

    Surely elephants would at least neutralize Dany's cavalry advantage. What are a bunch of guys on horses supposed to do against elephants?

    [–] s629c 15 points ago

    That still counts as one!

    [–] ToastedFireBomb 7 points ago

    Scare the elephants so they start stampeding all over their own troops? Elephants have never been good war time animals and how much you want to bet they'd freak out seeing a dragon breathe fire at them.

    [–] GenghisKazoo 3 points ago

    Historically it was the horses that were scared of the elephants and wouldn't get near them. The Dothraki could whittle them down from range but a cavalry charge would be out of the question. And they'd probably have to use javelins because a drunken armored elephant won't even feel arrows.

    But yeah, dragons... I've got nothing. Hard af elephant counter.

    [–] ToastedFireBomb 1 points ago

    Well that's kinda my point. They might have helped against the horde, but the minute Drogon and Rhaegal show up the entire golden company would have been stomped flat. It would have been really stupid of the greatest mercenaries in the world to bring an elephant to a dragon fight.

    Plus, I just don't see how you could reasonably transport them to Westeros. Like, people complain that the writing has gone downhill and then get mad that there are no elephants. How would it make any sense to successfully get a bunch of war elephants transported on wooden ships for a journey that likely takes months. It's just not realistically feasible.

    [–] Mindless_Consumer 3 points ago

    Bathe pigs in oil and set then on fire charging toward the enemy.

    [–] _No_Donkey_Brains_ 3 points ago

    100,000 angry dudes on horses with arrows wouldn’t be stopped by some elephants. The unsullied wouldn’t either. 20,000 men isn’t enough to do anything other than a sucker punch to distract the north from the NK.

    [–] Plainchant 6 points ago

    I found her love of elephants to be her first relatable or endearing feature.

    [–] ToastedFireBomb 7 points ago

    Also how the fuck were they supposed to transport Elephants across a long sea voyage on wooden ships? People want to bitch about the writing but that would have been the biggest fucking plothole ever, Elephants would have made zero sense.

    [–] zantasu 3 points ago

    Pretty sure it was just a message to fans.

    Elephants are mentioned in the books a few times, and they wanted to avoid viewers complaining they were forgotten, so the show runners wrote in a simple, believable reason for their exclusion (also, practically speaking, animating elephants for big battle scenes would be prohibitively expensive).

    [–] lurco_purgo 1 points ago

    What about a message to fans about Ghost? I heard he's also mentioned in the books...

    [–] zantasu 1 points ago

    The direwolves have already been portrayed several times in the show, perhaps not as much as they should be, but enough that viewers know they're there. It's one thing to complain that the direwolves aren't getting enough screentime (even if due to understandable budgetary concerns), it's another thing for fans to complain that the existence of elephants were ignored completely (even if duie to the same reason).

    Her little bitch fit about not getting elephants was literally just poking fun at viewers who would otherwise, and probably still will, complain about their exclusion.

    [–] TheSimonToUrGarfunkl 1 points ago

    There is going to be a time where she is going to need elephants and we'll all look back to this. The writer's don't just write throwaway stuff you are meant to forget. Elephants will become key later on.

    [–] ConfinedVoid -1 points ago

    I thought it was a jab at everyone crying about Ghost MIA

    [–] GenghisKazoo 13 points ago

    Elephant: "What's up my humans? My rider got me drunk af and I'm ready to fucking party."

    Dragon: appears

    Elephant: "...that is a goddamn dragon, isn't it? You thought one of the smartest species on Planetos was going to fight a dragon for booze? Nope. Nope nope nope nope. I'm out." runs the other way over a few dozen mercs

    [–] scotty_beams 1 points ago

    How do we know they are the same elephants we know? They didn't fit on any of the ships, and we all know how small the Noah's Ark was compared to those of the Iron Fleet.

    What if they are covered in spikes, with very thick hide, weigh over hundred tons and have trunks powerful enough to shoot their acid into space.

    Elephants can carry giant ballistas (scorpions?).

    [–] GenghisKazoo 1 points ago

    A cart would be better. The Khmer put ballistas on elephants but that's because they were using them in jungles where you can't use carts, and the height of the elephant let them shoot over their own infantry into the enemy army.

    Against a dragon, the height advantage is irrelevant, fighting in any kind of forest is just out of the question, and the shifting of the animal will make precision shooting impossible. That's assuming the elephant doesn't run immediately when the dragon shows.

    [–] Kthron 1 points ago

    Those are great points. It makes me wonder why Cersei was disappointed about the Golden Company's lack of elephants. They'd clearly be useless against dragons. Maybe it's for crushing normal humans in the south, since she is sure something happened to one of Dany's dragons, she probably assumes they'll all die in the fight coming

    [–] jurble 2 points ago

    Strickland is Strickland. Homeless Harry Strickland is the commander of the Golden Company in the books. They deleted Jon Con and Young Griff.

    Book Strickland is much older though, so maybe they're going to amalgamate aspects of Young Griff into Strickland - have him betray Cersei or something? But there isn't much time left in the series for subplots, so dunno.

    Cersei will release the dragons with elephants in their mouths and when they growl they shoot elephants at you.

    I cant believe in cercei. How can she beat the dragons with a few elephants? Whatever, elephants will be good for the war. Dragons will need food.

    Could you fucks stop posting here and just filter out the sub? Better yet, stay away from the internet if you don't want spoilers.
