Game Of Thrones Fans Frustrated By Finale's Final Words


For whatever reason, some of you walked away from the Game of Thrones finale feeling disappointed.

But while many people were frustrated about major deaths, filming blunders or bemusing plot holes, others had a much simpler gripe: the fact that we never got the punchline to Tyrion Lannister's joke.

We've heard Tyrion set the joke up several times in the past, saying: "I once brought a jackass and a honeycomb into a brothel."

But that familiar line proved to be the show's very last words, meaning we never got to find out how it ended.

One angry fan tweeted: "God damnit let Tyrion finish his joke."

Someone else said: "The only thing that was upsetting about the #GameofThrones ending is that we didn't get the conclusion of #Tyrion's joke. #honeycomb and the #jackass in a brothel."

Another wrote: "I'm really only upset that I still didn't get to hear the end of Tyrion's joke tbh."

A fourth said: "For fuck's sake Tyrion Lannister still doesn't finish his jackass and honeycomb joke."

To fill the void, some people have taken it upon themselves to try and finish the joke for Tyrion - including a particularly good one that's been doing the rounds online, including from Reddit user u/Retro21.

Here goes:

Tyrion walks into a brothel with a honeycomb and a jackass.
Madame: What can we do for you?
Tyrion: I need a woman to lay with, for mine has left me.
Madame: Whatever for? And what's with the honeycomb and the mule?
Tyrion: My woman found a genie in a bottle, and he granted her three wishes. The first was for a house fit for a queen, so he gave her this damn honeycomb. The second wish was that she have the nicest ass in all the land, so he gave her this damn donkey...
Madame: And what about the third wish?
Tyrion: Well... she asked the genie to make my c*** hang down past my knee.
Madame: Well that one's not so bad eh?
Tyrion: Not so bad!? I used to be six foot three!

Huffington Post also roped in several comedians to see if they could do the joke any justice.

David Drake suggested: "I once walked into a brothel with a honeycomb and a jackass. The madam says, 'Sweet ride'."

Matt O'Brien's went for: "I once walked into a brothel with a honeycomb and a jackass. The madam says, 'Is that hexagonal prismatic wax cells built by honey bees and a donkey or are you just happy to see me?'"

Ryan Beck, meanwhile, went a little more x-rated, saying: "I once walked into a brothel with a honeycomb and a jackass. The madam says, 'Tyrion, I don't care what kind of lube you brought, I won't do it!'"
