Hafþór Björnsson, the sound you make when you sneeze and fart at the same time and also the real-life name of Game of Thrones’ “Mountain,” is not as tough on the outside as you might think.
Sure, on television Björnsson smashes skulls like grapes and violently destroys everything in his path, but off screen he is just a lovable weirdo who likes to frolic in the field with his tiny little toy dog. Take a look:
Widely considered the strongest man in the world according to, well, the people who pay attention to that sort of thing, Björnsson’s only weakness is his furry little eight pound friend who helps him work on his cardio.
In case you still had any respect left for Björnsson, just note that his dog is a Pomeranian named Asterix — and it has its own Instagram account.
While I do have a soft spot in my heart for small, furry rat-like dogs, I still can’t get over the fact that the biggest human being on earth loves, uh, a Pomeranian. Those dogs are so low on the food chain that they could literally be food for other, better more noble dog breeds. Just think about The Mountain with, say, a German Shepherd. Makes sense, doesn’t it? A man’s dog for a man’s man. Even a lab, which doesn’t strike me as a “Mountain” dog would make more sense to me than Asterix.
I guess this only means one thing: A woman is behind this (perhaps Cersei?). And The Mountain is clearly whipped..
