Now that Game of Thrones is over, we still don’t know Tyrion’s ‘honeycomb and jackass’ joke.
Or do we?
I’ve tried to find it online years ago, when Tyrion first left the joke unfinished, but I didn’t find a satisfactory version. But now that he tried telling it again before having the punchline stolen away from us (just like the whole season 8, I might add), I’ve searched for the joke yet again – and this time I was successful.
So, here it is:
Tyrion walks into a brothel with a honeycomb and a jackass.
Madame: What can we do for you?
Tyrion: I need a woman to lay with, for mine has left me.
Madame: Whatever for? And what’s with the honeycomb and the mule?
Tyrion: My woman found a genie in a bottle, and he granted her three wishes. The first was for a house fit for a queen, so he gave her this damn honeycomb. The second wish was that she have the nicest ass in all the land, so he gave her this damn donkey…
Madame: And what about the third wish?
Tyrion: Well… she asked the genie to make my [penis] hang down past my knee.
Madame: Well that one’s not so bad eh?
Tyrion: Not so bad!? I used to be six foot three!
