About

Stannis the Mannis is a nickname given to Stannis Baratheon, a character in George R. R. Martin’s series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire and the adapted HBO fantasy television series Game of Thrones. In fan art, photoshopped stills and GIFs from the show, Stannis the Mannis is made to look cool.

Origin

Stannis Baratheon (played by Stephen Dillane),[5] brother of Robert Baratheon, who rules as king of the realm until his death in season one of Game of Thrones, first appears in the show’s second season premiere “The North Remembers” which first aired on April 1st, 2012. As Robert’s eldest brother Stannis is the heir to the Iron Throne, though few see him as a threat initially because few know Joffrey and Cersei’s other children are Jaime’s illegitimate offspring. Stannis tries to gain the Iron Throne with the help of his right hand man, Ser Davos Seaworth, and Lord of the Light priestess Melisandre. In May 2012, a page was created on Quickmeme [7] featuring Stannis the Mannis image macros (shown below).

Here are your options.

A) Support the Starks, regardless the fact they can’t do anything and they all separated and believed dead.

B) Support the Lannisters you sick bastard.

C) Support Daenerys Targaryen who is too busy struggling at controlling her dragons and running more then one city and also will never even get to Westeros.

D) Support the one true king Stannis of the House Baratheon, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm. Who is the legitimate heir, is consistently proving that he would protect the realm by dealing with the Wildlings, punishing those who do evil, proving he is powerful enough to oppose other armies and is not defeated in one battle. But his best quality that should win every sane citizen in all the lands is proving that he is the Mannis.
