When Skyrim Jokes Go Too Far

There are a lot of funny moments found within 200 hours or so of Skyrim, and I’m not sure why it is that the guard who says, “I used to be an adventurer, but then I took an arrow to the knee” is the one people walked away with.

Somehow it became an internet sensation, and then morphed into a plague, populating top YouTube comments and Facebook statuses everywhere, even by people who had no idea what a “Skyrim” was.

And now the joke is officially dead as someone has gotten it tattooed on their body as seen above. When a meme gets a tattoo or an awful parody video, you know it’s over. This one now has both.

    People have latched onto it because apparently EVERY guard in the whole of Skyrim has had a horrible knee related injury.

    :( this bothers me because an arrow to the knee would be much more effective from behind at permanently crippling someone.

    Also, the fad will fade, but hopefully the line sticks around as a sort of “that’s what she said” or “and then I found 20 dollars” replacement.

    What really bothers me is that the guards I have run into say “then I took an arrow IN the knee” not “to the knee”.

    inb4 “someone stole my sweetroll” tramp stamp.

    @Ray Bacon

    pedantic much?

  • Drester

    Can’t believe I didn’t get this joke before it got old.

  • Ricky

    FUCK OFF, LAHEY

  • Buttery Mess

    I swear one of them once said to me that they used to be an adventurer until they took an arrow in the face.

  • Pip

    That’s actually a cool tattoo though

  • Mouserz

    I used to like this joke, then she got a “arrow in the knee” tattoo on her knee.

    Well they always say ‘in the knee,’ but I guess someone took some artistic liberty and changed it so it would sound more humorous. And there is one man, in the city where Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak is (right now, I can’t recall the name of the city), I believe the mans name is Argnar Once-Honored, he says he took a sword right through the chest.
