Today marks an important — and hopefully annual — holiday. All across social media, people are celebrating our shared loathing of one of the most repulsive villains to ever grace our culture with #RoastJoffrey. Just remember, this well-written reprehensible teenager is played by the incredibly talented and sweet Jack Gleeson who is nothing like his alter ego.


The official Game of Thrones twitter kicked off the holiday with this poem.

Of course, none of this would have happened if Batman had taken care of him.

But that's okay, Dexter will fix it.
