I love how about a third of the characters in the Game of Thrones universe have some silly little nickname and personal catchphrase that everyone uses with perfectly straight faces while having serious conversations. Every council meeting is like,
“My lord, the Spatula grows more treacherous by the day. He must be stopped.”
“The Milkshake is right, Your Grace. Soon his forces will be encroaching on the bay, into the lands of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy.”
“This has not escaped my notice, Ser Boring Guy With No Nickname. The Spatula is the gravest threat to the kingdom. But what can we do about it?”
“I have ten thousand troops ready at your command. Simply say the word and they will march to his castle gates. You know my house words, Your Grace.”
“Yes, yes. The Milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.”
When one had enough power to take a life with a twitch of a finger, a thought, they earned the right to wear skin-tight clothing and call themselves Hero, or Legend. To wear a mask and name themselves something inane like ‘the Cockatoo’ and still take themselves seriously.
it’s the same thing, deep down
