“Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin wants to set the record straight: He’s a “boobies, not weenies” kind of guy.
And how would that ever come up in polite conversation?
Martin was at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, reluctantly talking to media staked out on a red carpet.
In one interview with Dana Ward of Clevver News, the topic of those three “Game of Thrones” spoof episodes on “South Park” last fall came up.

Martin is a “South Park” fan but said he hasn’t watched those particular episodes yet.
“I have been that told my character in ‘South Park’ is obsessed about weenies,” he said to Ward. “I have to deny this as a scurrilous rumor.”
Not, he said, that he has anything 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.”
Did you get that? Once again: “Boobies, not weenies,” he said.
