HBO Regrets Featuring Bush’s Impaled Head on Game of Thrones

The recent discovery–DVD commentary acknowledgment of a model of George W. Bush's impaled head in Game of Thrones season one has resulted in speedy apologies from both HBO ("We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste") and series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who express their remorse thusly: "After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush. In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have. We meant no disrespect to the former president and apologize if anything we said or did suggested otherwise." HBO says the impaled president will be excised from future productions of the DVD. No word on a full Internet scrub.
