Jimmy Fallon's 'Game of Thrones' Update: Watch 'Game of Desks'

I am not a Game of Thrones fan. For two seasons, I really tried, but gave up when some unbearably awful line of dialogue sent me running. In season 1, the line was "I am a Khaleesi of the Dothraki." As one irate comment pointed out at the time, that's the equivalent of "I am the Queen of England," which was pretty much my point - that's a terrible line. My GOT aversion comes with some exceptions, though: Peter Dinklage, just because he's fantastic as the wily Tyrion, and now Jimmy Fallon, whose parody Game of Desks premiered last night. Guess who announces herself as the Khaleesi?

Game of Desks

 The conceit is that Studio 6B is a lot like the world of Game of Thrones (less of a stretch than saying it's like Downton Abbey, in the hilarious Late Night Downton Sixby spoofs). Take a look at the cutthroat world of power as it plays out among late night hosts and pretenders to what they call the Iron Desk.
