A high school teacher has pulled a vile ploy comparable to a Lannister’s promise: he’s threatened his unruly class with Game of Thrones spoilers.
When his class of misfits didn’t settle down, a Belgian math teacher asked how many of them watch the fantasy drama. After the majority of the class raised their hands, he responded with, “Well, I’ve read all the books. If there is too much noise, I will write the names of the dead on the board. They [the dead] are enough to fill the whole year and I can even describe how they die.”
When the students believed it was an empty threat, he began to write those who’ve been killed off in Season Three, which was enough for the students to continue working in silence. Personally, I’d take a ruler beating over Game of Thrones spoilers any day.
Think this is Ramsay Snow-style cruel and unusual punishment or a Littlefinger-genius type of move? Sound off in the comments below.
