    Gaarh! Spoiler warning next time please!

    Not okay to put this in the email newsletter – definitely needs a spoiler warning. Or just take it down.

    You’re going to piss quite a few people off with this spoiler.

    I’ve seen the odd stuff up in Crikey over the years, but nothing as bad as this one in “cartoon dept”. As the others have noted.
    Badly needs a spoiler alert.
    Hell, it’s not even particularly funny. #lamefail

    For an internet only publication, you sure have a thing or two to learn about internet etiquette regarding spoilers.

    I disagree Paddy – I think it’s an excellent multivalent spoof. As for a spoiler alert – Um…you are aware that it’s all in the books, guys?
    …Oh what fun it is to write a one-horse open slay!

    I’ve read the books rhwombat. (and seen the episode.)
    But today’s effort is still a clusterf*ck of a spoiler.

    In my humble opinion, the sandpit has not exactly covered itself in glory so far. Today is a low point.

    the reaction from the commenters is funnier than the actual piece.
    well done.
