George R.R. Martin has a bone to pick with the “South Park” guys.
Martin, the author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series that HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is based on, took time out from his visit to Comic-Con this year to set the record straight on the “South Park” parody of “Game of Thrones.”
“I haven’t actually watched it. I have it on TiVo, and various of my assistants and my wife have watched it. They’re debating whether I should watch it or not,” the author told Clevver News. “I do love ‘South Park,’ I love some of the other episodes that they’ve done. I’m a sensitive soul. Would it be too rough on me? I don’t know.”
One thing Martin does know: “South Park” was off-base on his preferred anatomical part.
“I do have to say, I’ve been told that my character on ‘South Park’ is obsessed about weenies. I have to deny this as a scurrilous rumor,” Martin clarified. “I have nothing against weenies, weenies are fine, but I am not obsessed with weenies. I am definitely on the boobies side of the equation. They picked the wrong equation for me: boobies, not weenies.”
The “South Park” parody of “Game of Thrones,” which aired late last year, depicted Martin dishing to Butters and Scott Malkinson about “Thrones” plot points with an emphasis on male characters’ genitals.
