George R. R. Martin Responds to Game of Thrones South Park Episode: I Like “Boobies, Not Weenies”
South Park is known for lampooning, well, everything, and this past season they went after none other than Game of Thronesin a three part episode. The epic trilogy divides the children of South Park into factions in support of pooling their money toward either an Xbox One or a Playstation 4, but of course, in the style of GoT.
While at Comic-Con, A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin was asked what he thought of the episode by Clevver News. “I haven’t actually watched it,” George admits. “I have it on Tivo, and various assistants and my wife have watched it and they’re debating whether I should watch it or not.”
Despite his friends and family not yet giving him the green light, George says he will probably watch it eventually. “I do love South Park, I love some of the other episodes that they’ve done,” George says, adding, “I’m a sensitive soul, would it be too rough on me? I don’t know.”
Though George does know at least one plot detail from the show, one that he’s eager to correct. “I’ve been told that my character in South Park is obsessed about weenies,” George reveals. “I have to deny this as a scurrilous rumor. I have nothing against weenies, weenies are fine, but I’m not obsessed with weenies. I am definitely on the boobies side of the equation, they picked the wrong equation for me... boobies, not weenies.”
Interestingly enough, boobies not weinies is also a good way to describe the nudity on Game of Thrones!
