Amy Poehler Quizzes George R.R. Martin on ‘Game of Thrones’ Knowledge

Amy Poehler and “Game of Thrones” novelist George R.R. Martin both stopped by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Tuesday, and Meyers and Poehler teamed up to quiz Martin on his knowledge of his own books.

Quizzing Martin on quotes, or in the case of “F—! You cut off my f—— hand!,” paraphrases, from the books, Meyers and Poehler showed viewers that even the esteemed writer has a hard time keeping track of who said what in his sprawling fantasy series.

After Martin finished tripping up on the curveballs Poehler threw him, the two took a shot backstage exchanging each others’ newly released books – “Yes Please” by Poehler and “The World of Ice and Fire” by Martin.

Did George R.R. Martin find a new Mother of Dragons backstage at #LNSM?

No word from Martin yet on whether or not readers can expect to see Westeros 9 meteorologist Breeze Daniels or Winterfell math tutor Mrs. Puddlefinch in future books.
