'Game of Turkeys': Thanksgiving Twitter Fun for 'Game of Thrones' Fans

'Game of Thrones' logo"Thanksgiving is coming" ... 'Game of Thrones' fans have been getting into the Thanksgiving spirit on Twitter this week by creating a world of puns known as 'Game of Turkeys.'

Sadly, 'Game of Thrones' creator George R.R. Martin hasn't joined the fun as he is rather Twitter-averse, but his original words have given rise to some truly hilarious, clever and, at times, just plain weird word play.

From Ned Stark's "If you would take a turkey's life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words," through Tyrion Lanister's "A Butterball ALWAYS pays his debts," to Jon Snow's "You baste them with the pointy end," homage is paid to all the classic 'Game of Thrones' lines. Enjoy!

Here's a selection of our favorites so far:

"You know stuffing, Jon Snow!"

"The turkey is of the North. It deserves better than a butcher."

"Mummy, I want to see the bad turkey fly."

"As soon as you've had your blood I'll put a chicken in you. And maybe a duck. Mother says that shouldn't be long."

"When you play the Game of Turkeys, you win or you brine. There is no middle ground."

"And what do we say to the god of death? Not today. Gobble Gobble!"

"Enough, Ned, I'll hear no more. A turkey is a savage beast. Get her a dog, she'll be happier for it."

"Tell Lord Tywin winter is coming for him. Twenty thousand northerners marching south to find out if he really does sh*t gravy."

Check out the full selection at #GameofTurkeys.
