George R.R. Martin might be a slow writer, but at least he is a self-aware slow writer. The “A Song of Ice and Fire” author made a hilarious appearance in Funny or Die’s “Gay of Thrones” Season 4 finale recap episode and poked fun at the fact that “The Winds of Winter” is taking him — in technical terms — way the heck too long.
The entire “Game of Thrones” recap video is hysterical, but Martin’s appearance at the end really is the best part. The sketch takes a “Princess Bride” turn in true GRRM style, and his final insult at the little boy is too good to miss.
