Yesterday, though, I discovered that he said I "should be smoking a cyberial cigar" after being on a Jeopardy! Live Panel. I didn't know before now because he didn't @mention me. It'...

Re: For the LLamas Among Us

Shocked so many people knew what George RR Martin (and does he really need the RR?) looks like. There's a Commander of the British Empire named George Martin.
