King Joffrey Hugging A Pug Sparks ‘Game Of Thrones' Photoshop Battle

Actor Jack Gleeson should have known what would happen if he tweeted this kind of pic.

Funny is coming.

Actor Jack Gleeson made quite the lasting impression with his portrayal of the ruthless baby king Joffrey Baratheon in Seasons 1 through 3 of “Game of Thrones.”

His performance was so good that it’s hard for many “GoT” fans to separate the actor from the character.

This means that when Gleeson posted a photo of himself hugging a pug on Twitter in January 2016, it’s hard to not see Joffrey, a powerful, bloodthirsty brat, cuddling an innocent animal.

On Monday, the picture made its way to Reddit’s popular Photoshop Battle thread, and, let’s just say Reddit users also had a hard time separating Gleeson from the Iron Throne.

The result is a bunch of Photoshopped versions of Gleeson’s pug picture that are a straight-up Greyjoy for any “GoT” fan to behold.

For instance, there are a few pretty innocent photos with pretty blatant references to the HBO show:

Then, there are few that are a little more esoteric. For example, the caption on this one is, “Nymeria still keeps biting me!”

And this picture boasts the hilarious caption: “Oysters, Clams, and Pug.”

One Redditor went there with a Ned Stark beheading reference:

Then another Redditor decided to reference a completely different kind of king:

Oh, internet, don’t ever change.
