The Gardening/Game of Thrones Connection (NSFW . . . sort of)

A little birdy (okay, Zora) alerted me to this connection last week after she visited her college friends in Boulder over Halloween.

Apparently, not a lot of the young people in Boulder are familiar with Game of Thrones but one friend also loves the show. He showed Zora a Playboy interview with Peter Dinklage, who plays the character everyone loves most, Tyrion Lannister.

That’s where she learned of the gardening connection. In the  20-questions-style interview  Dinklage was asked a rather gross question:

“There’s a video on YouTube called “Peter Dinklage Gets So Much P—y,” in which two guys discuss how much you’ve been getting laid since Game of Thrones. They estimate your sexual activity has increased 600 percent in the last few years. Does that sound about right?”

Dinklage (who is married and has a young daughter) responds: “It depends. By ‘p—y’ do they mean actual p—y? Or is it a metaphor, like for gardening? Because if that’s the case, then yes, I’ve been doing a lot of gardening lately. If they mean sex, they might be getting me confused with somebody else. But if p—y means wearing old-man sweaters and watering my herb garden, then absolutely, I’m getting so much p—y.”

Ahh, the wit!

I tried to find more information on Dinklage’s gardening, but, alas, interviewers are not asking him more on that subject. I did, however, find this fantastic interview in New York Times Magazine.
