Here's what George R. R. Martin said about Playboy's sexy GRRM costume

Posted on

We do a lot of strange things as a culture, but one of the strangest has to be sexing up Halloween. Sexy Olaf. Sexy Groot. Sexy Doublemint gum. You’d think people weren’t allowed to be sexy all the other 364 days in the year, because we continue to find all the repressed sexy hiding in Disney movies and inanimate objects.

In a bit of delicious irony, Playboy took the opportunity to poke fun at the sexy side of Halloween by coming up with a number of sexy costumes they’d like to see.  One of those costumes was Sexy George R.R. Martin. And then GRRM found out about it.

On his Live Journal page last night, the author of A Song of Ice and Fire took a moment to think about how strange his life has gotten lately.

“I can’t say that I’ve ever had a thing for bearded women, but I have to confess, Sexy George R.R. Martin is… er… sexy,” Martin wrote. “But there is something deeply disturbing about being turned on by yourself.  Stranger than incest.  Or even twincest.”

Halloween is weird.
