Well that's one way to keep kids in line!
In a move that would have made the scheming Tywin Lannister proud, a Belgian teacher has threatened students with revealing Game of Thrones spoilers if they wouldn't quiet down, according to the U.K.'s Telegraph.
After discovering that most of his students watch the HBO fantasy drama, the math teacher told his class that if they continued to be noisy during class, he would reveal the names of those who died during Season 3 on the board at the front of the class. As fans of the series know, last season included the horrific Red Wedding, during which fan-favorite characters met their death.
At first, the pupils didn't heed his threat, until he started writing the names on the board. Suffice it to say, the students quickly fell silent.
This unusual teaching tactic could continue for a while since the TV series is based upon the seven-book series by author George R.R. Martin. The fourth season of Game of Thrones kicks off on Sunday, April 6 at 9/8c on HBO.
What do you think of the teacher's strategy? Would you fall into line if threatened by spoilers?
