So, I'm reading this on a Monday and don't get it at all. Don't know whether it's because I don't know Game of Thrones at all, or whether my Monday brain isn't up to handle a possible pun???

Yeah, I decided to geek out and do a Game of Thrones/Red Dwarf joke. One of the more famous lines in GoT is "What is the one thing we say to Death? 'NOT TODAY.'"

Whereas Red Dwarf's infamous exchange was:
Rimmer: "What are you doing? You can't just whack Death over the head!"
Lister: "If Death comes near me I'll rip 'is smegging nipples off!" :D

Cameo appearance from Cat? Starbug landing?

Okay, that helped with the May 6 strip, but I'm still confused about the May 3 strip, specifically "Cuz a Lannister always dazes pets"--just not getting it!

I had to ask a GOT fan for help. It's a twist on "Because a Lannister always pays his debts."
