From Best Show on WFMU host/comedy genius Tom Scharpling:
FWIW: His wife is a huge fan of the books, but he can't stand fantasy (or at least projects the image) and imagines that the books are full of dialogue like "Dance! Dance for us, Elf!" and "Tonight we feast on BOAR!!!" I imagine tonight's episode will be chock full of references to George "Railroad" Martin.
(He also regularly has comic book writers like Matt Fraction and Jonathan Hickman on the show, as well as geek comedy gods Patton Oswalt and John Hodgman. Listen to it, it's a fine program.)
