Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin has not actually seen the series of three South Park episodes that aired last fall in which he was a prominent character, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have an opinion about the way he was portrayed. Asked about the parody on during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Martin said he had some things he needed to clarify about his supposed obsession with “wieners.”
Martin admitted that he has the episodes “on Tivo” and his wife and assistants are currently debating whether he should subject himself to them. He said he “loves” the show, but is worried it might be too rough on his “sensitive soul.”
“I’ve been told that my character on South Park is obsessed about weenies,” he said. “I have to deny this as a scurrilous rumor. 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.”
“Boobies, not weenies,” he clarified once more.
