Just What You've Always Wanted

Watch Game of Thrones‘ Olenna Tyrell and Downton Abbey‘s Violet Crawley Engage in a Battle of Wits [VIDEO]


When Vulture pits Game of Thrones‘ and Downton Abbey‘s resident sassmaster grandmothers against one another, who emerges victorious?

Ah, I can’t choose. Let’s just say that the combined wit of Olenna Tyrell (Dame Diana Rigg) and Violet Crawley (Dame Maggie Smith), if harnessed as some sort of weapon, could handily dispatch all the lessers in Westeros and win the Iron Throne for the two of them to share. But they’d replace it with something way more classy.

    Olenna, purely for the fact that she seems to enjoy being smarter than everyone else more than Violet.

    Who wins? We all do.

    I think Violet Crawley wins. While I don’t personally subscribe to the idea that “Vulgarity is not a substitute for wit,” I think I like the fact that Violet can be so biting without mention of penises and toilets.

    Not for me.
