Amidst all the political intrigue, epic battles, and incestuous sexy-time, the incredibly clever dialogue on Game of Thrones is sometimes overshadowed.
So, as season four of GoT begins to draw to a close, we figured it would be a good time to reminisce on the most scathing insults to spring from the minds of author George R.R. Martin and showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff.
In case you're unaware, folks in Westeros don't always get along, and when they're not disemboweling each other with swords they're firing off equally cutting put-downs.
Naturally, many of the highest caliber disses issue forth from the mouth of the sharp-tongued imp, Tyrion Lannister.
Conversations between Tyrion and his malevolent sister Cersei play out like a sort of master class in medieval insult comedy. We guess when you've hated someone for your entire life, you've got plenty of time to think of wicked ways to knock them down a peg.
