Moronic Monday: Theon Greyjoy


Mondays, the worst day of the week. Despite the fact that it's the start of your school/work week, there is always something extra that just pushes it to the next level. That someone that just permanently keeps Monday at the top of most dreaded days of the week. That's what this meme is about. The one character that drives you mad with their stupidity. Their idiocy is the type that you can spot their impending train wreck from miles away, the type that makes you want to slam their heads into a desk repeatedly. Moronic Mondays are not for your loveable idiots, no, it's for the ones that you think they deserve every bad thing they get it.

When reading and watching The Game of Thrones series, I wanted to bash my head, better yet Theon's head into the nearest desk. I get that he is supposed to be this really troubled character with a lot of emotional issues due to his upbringing, but I had no sympathy for him. The Starks never treated him poorly, I'd wager that he had a better childhood with them then if he stayed on the Iron Islands. But he threw it all away.

He walked around like an entitled wanker with a chip on his shoulder, but he did nothing that deemed him worthy of praise or glory. He betrayed everyone around him because of his stupidity and paid for it all in the end. The way the book was written as well as the way the show as filmed, I think I'm supposed to feel bad for him. Something about despite how stupid he is, no one deserves that kind of hell but I don't feel that way. I'm glad that he's covered in the shit storm he created. He deserved everything he got, which is why he's this weeks' moron.
