When scrolling through the visual assignments I decided my first assignment needed to be Game of Thrones related. It is my favorite TV show and book series of all times. However, I didn’t want to use my own last name to create a House because most people can’t even pronounce it.
So I came up with the perfect solution… Why not combine two of my favorite things? Memes and Game of Thrones.
For those who don’t know who or what Harambe is, let me explain. On May 28th, a six year old boy fell into the gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati zoo. The gorilla in the exhibit was a endangered 17 year old silverback named Harambe. To protect the boy, the zoo took action by shooting and killing Harambe instead of tranquilizing him.
Thus one of the greatest memes was born.
And what relates more to the Internet than memes? A joking form that would not exist if it was not for the Internet?
Voila! I made House Harambe. A powerful House in Westeros where Legends Never Die.
However, I’m not sure how well gorillas do when winter comes. (GoT reference)
