'Game of Thrones' Throat Cut

Totally Unrealistic

Says O.J. Simpson's Witness

"Game of Thrones" is portraying throat-slashing ALL WRONG ... so says a forensic expert from the O.J. Simpson murder case -- and he outta know.

**SPOILER ALERT  -- IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED LAST NIGHT'S EPISODE, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED ... but you should probably watch it asap **

When Catelyn's jugular was sliced at the Red Wedding in last night's episode ... her blood SHOULD NOT have cascaded out of her neck ... it should have sprayed like a hose from 1 or 2 important veins.

At least according to Dr. Michael Baden -- a board-certified forensic pathologist who was a defense witness at O.J.'s trial and also worked on the government investigation into the JFK assassination.

"Just by chance I walked in during the scene when everyone was being killed," Baden tells us ... explaining, "Blood doesn't come out like that."

"If cut deep enough, the right and left carotid artery will spurt a few feet, just like a hose .... not this broad blood-flowing out like a waterfall from the whole neck."

He adds, "There would have been squirting from the right or left carotid artery, carotid arteries spurt.”

Baden also says ... the victims wouldn't have died so quickly ... because death from a throat slashing, "takes much longer than that."

... and now you know.

Is he aware that it's a fictional TV show? Not a do***entary? Maybe if he paid that much attention to the TRIAL...

I seen the episode but how are you gonna act like you gave a spoiler warning then post a screenshot of Cat getting her throat slashed? Even if you scroll quickly you'll see it.

Baden doesn't know his arse from a hole in the ground... listen to his testimony in the Phil Spector trial... for a fist full of dollars he'll say anything...

"It should have sprayed like a hose from 1 or 2 important veins"? That's frikken ignorant. Blood doesn't spurt from veins, it spurts from arteries... as the quoted expert clearly states. Yes, there is a difference between veins and arteries.
