If only this class were available to the Jon Snow, then Ygritte wouldn't rub his cluelessness in his face so much! HA!
So now, not only can you watch Game of Thrones on HBO, but now you can actually STUDY it thanks to the class being offered at the University of Virginia!
Well, Lisa Woolfork, the professor of the summer class at UVA, explains that it's much MORE than just a silly old English class.
In fact, she's teaching the books along with the HBO episodes and proving that the series doesn't "ruin" the books, but they enhance the reading experience!
'One of the goals behind this class was to teach students how the skills that we use to study literature are very useful skills for reading literature and TV in conjunction. Game of Thrones is popular, it’s interesting, but it’s also very serious. There are a lot of things in the series that are very weighty, and very meaningful, and can be illuminated through the skills of literary analysis'
It’s so literary – how in-depth it is, how robust it is, how much there is to discuss about it. But we’re also very concerned about the pop culture aspects, how we as viewers receive Game of Thrones. I think it’s important to apply the same principles we do with literature to television and film…'
WHOA! How exciting does THAT sound!
We wonder what the next pop culture-induced college class will be?
The Avengers differences in comic books and movies? Taylor Swift's influence on the music industry?

We would be SO upset if we were the parents of children at Bostian Elementary School in China Grove, North Carolina!

Maya Peterson was the first black, female student body president at New Jersey’s expensive private Lawrenceville School, but she was forced to resign.
The teen has a history of posting racially charged things on all forms of social media, but what got her in trouble was when she posted a picture of herself making fun of a white, affluent “Lawrenceville boi,” where she was dressed in a Yale sweater, is holding a hockey stick, and wearing L.L. Bean duck boots.
She also added the hastags #romney2016, #confederate, and #peakedinhighschool.
NOT the kind of behavior you expect from the student body president!
Daddy must be SO proud!
