See Game of Thrones’ Altered George W. Bush Head

HBO has solved its kind of silly George W. Bush head problem. Recall that Game of Thrones used a fake head whose face resembled George W. Bush for one of its many gory noggins-on-spikes scenes. Producers mentioned it on the DVD commentary for the first season — which came out in March — but apparently no one much noticed or cared until a few weeks ago, when the whole Internet noticed and/or cared. HBO apologized, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff apologized, and then HBO decided to yank the episode from HBO Go and pull the DVDs until the offending noodle could be digitally altered. And now it has! Someone deserves an A+ for emergency digital-face-deleting.
