    I was responding to Ereth talking about GIFs.

    "Well High Sparrow, I would of course love to provide my husband with an heir. But you've kept me locked up in the Great Sept."

    Yes. But point is he pronounces it wrong. Just because he invented something he called the Graphical Interchange Format doesn't give him the right over the English language pronunciation of the word "graphical".

    Does anyone know why the "little birds" killed Pycelle? He gave them candy and there was never anything else implied, was there?

    Proximate cause is that Qyburn told them to (off-screen).

    As for why Qyburn told them, probably he and Cersei figured that Pycelle might object to Cersei being Queen.

    Varys is the one who gave them candy as they were his network of spies. Qyburn took that role over. Pycelle never had anything to do with the little birds.

    And they killed him because Qyburn told them to.

    As to why they didn't just let Pycelle go to the trial and die in the wildfire blast instead?

    I can think of two reasons:
    1) A reward/revenge for Qyburn for having to listen to Pycelle insult him all this time
    2) If Pycelle was at the Sept he may have figured out what was going on like Margaery did and convinced the High Sparrow to evacuate

    Pycelle's treatment of the disadvantaged is what did him in. Remember his vanity and the unwillingness to pay the prostitute earlier? The "little birds" are children of those that are taken advantage of, such as the prostitute. Pycelle has probably stiffed them as well, in more ways than one, so they were more than willing to take him down. Qyburn only needed to give a little nudge.

    We also have no reason to think that Pycelle was going to go to the trial. No reason to think he wouldn't go either I suppose. But everyone else that occupied the small counsel against Cersei was at the trial already when Pycelle was lured away (unless I am mistaken).

    What does the pronunciation of "graphical" have to do with the pronunciation of "gif"? If there was a Gnome International Fund, would its acronym be pronounced "nif"?

    More importantly, how do they pronounce "gif" in the Common Tongue, and can we use that to determine whether or not it is actually English?

    Oh, I think Pycelle would have reveled in watching Cersei on trial. I think he would've been there.

    I figure if the guy who invented it went out of his way to specify the pronunciation, then that's how I'll pronounce it. I'm not sure how Linus Torvalds pronounce Linus, but I am sure how to pronounce Linux.

    The right way to spell potato:

    If GH can stand for P as in Hiccough
    If OUGH stands for O as in Dough
    If PHTH stands for T as in Phthisis
    If EIGH stands for A as in Neighbour
    If TTE stands for T as in Gazette
    If EAU stands for O as in Plateau
    Then the right way to spell POTATO should be: GHOUGHPHTHEIGHTTEEA

    That's what I was trying to say. Did I screw it up somehow?

    And Ereth was being funny about Ay-Jon. Or at least trying to be. Ereth doesn't seriously believe it's pronounced that way. Nobody should take Ereth seriously on this point. Sometimes his jokes just land flat. It happens.

    Oh, the reason I came here...

    I was watching "Gay of Thrones" on "Funny or Die", and while I didn't care for the bit, they made one joke that I thought landed rather well, especially for here.

    They referred to Bran using the Weirwood Tree to get visions as "using his treevo". I LOVED that joke.

    I missed this look from Littlefinger to Sansa, once Jon was declared King of the North:

    One of the plots in the books which has been cut from the show is that Rhaegar's son with Elia Martell was saved. His name is Aegon, and since he would be Jon's half-brother, it's unlikely that Jon's Targaryen birth name would be Aegon as well.
