Hodor from Game of Thrones got the Google Easter egg he deserves

Hodo… I mean, HBO

If you needed any more confirmation that Game of Thrones has achieved total domination and that the world now belongs to the nerds, look to Google. Or rather, talk to Google. The company apparently has an Easter egg on both its app and its website featuring Hodor, the character on Game of Thrones who can only say his own name.

If you use the app, Google will recognize what you are saying  …


… And will grant you results in the way Hodor would respond (Hodorese? Hodori? Hodorean?):


It also works on Google's search page. But speak clearly. It's too easy for Google to think you're saying, "Who door."

No word yet as to whether Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy will be getting his own Easter egg.
