Game of Thrones spoiler threats used by teacher to silence noisy students
Teacher threatened to reveal names of the dead if class continued to talk
A secondary school maths teacher has used the power of Game of Thrones plot spoilers to control noise levels in his class.
When faced with a noisy auditorium, the teacher threatened to write the names of all the characters who die in Game of Thrones series three on the board.
After discovering the majority of his students watched Game of Thrones, he said: “Well, I’ve read all the books. If there is too much noise again, I will write the names of the dead on the board.”
Belgian newspaper nieuwsblad.be reports him as saying: “They [the dead] are enough to fill the whole year and I can even describe how they die.”
When some students did not take the threat seriously, he began to write the names of those killed on the board, to the dismay of a 20 students who apparently sighed in disgust.
The class was then silent for the rest of the lesson, according to the pupil who first wrote about the anecdote on French forum danstonchat.com.
The story, which has gone viral on social media, has led to one student calling the unnamed maths teacher a “genius”.
With Game of Thrones returning to our screens soon, the maths teacher will have even more ammunition to silence his class, should he need to again.
The latest trailer for Game of Thrones season four was released last week, showing Daenerys Targaryen continuing her fight for power while the fate of the once-powerful Stark family is questioned.
Game of Thrones series four returns to Sky Atlantic on Monday 7 April.
