Threatening to spoil Game of Thrones to silence a class of noisy kids. You’ve got to be one ruthless teacher. I can handle picking up a few bits of rubbish, or even detention. But do not threaten to ruin the HBO fantasy serial for me, and, effectively, ruin my life. No, I’m not overreacting.
Seen first as an empty threat, the kids went about their rowdy ways until the Belgian maths teacher starting writing down the names of the dead up on the board. Claiming to have enough names to last the whole year, they quietened down. “They [the dead] are enough to fill the whole year and I can even describe how they die.” He’s almost as evil as Joffrey Baratheon.
And from that day on, not a work was spoken in school’s all over the world.
