They don't actually it's a novelty grenade, just "novelty item".  I'm guessing... grenade-shaped dildo?

I don't think they like to be called 'Japes' anymore, since the war.

I don't want to be reminded of Martin's writing for awhile, thanks, subby.

He created an admittedly fascinating universe, but still the guy is an annoying, creepy writer. I may be the only "fan" who is relieved to have to wait for more additions to the story.

Too bad it wasn't a real one that detonated in his face.

True, the guy did a lot of douche things, but he did a lot of good, even when you factor in the buttslut, Every job has its perks, right?

No, GRRM uses the word "jape" as a replacement for joke/prank.

So I take a number, retreat out of the blast range, and then wait for it to blow a crater in the complaint-department person's desk?
Not seeing the downside here...

Such japery! I'll wager that many a chortle and guffaw were heard over this scalawag's witticism. Oh, of course you'll always have the bluenoses tut-tutting, and perhaps the constabulary would take a dim view of such shenanigans. But as far as I'm concerned, it's the tomfoolery of rapscallions and scapegraces that make life worth living.

Thanks, but it was still threadjacking. I'll show myself out.

Can someone please explain to me what exactly a "jape" is? I am at work and afraid to Google it...

It's just an old timey word for joke. And for future reference, typically a search at dictionary.com is going to be pretty safe.

About as funny as a mummer's fart while breaking my fast.

He is giving some lectures at New York University. Not the most popular guy on campus.

Huh, it is just another english word to me.  I guess people are more obsessed with him and his writing than I thought...

/disregard my lame jape

Didn't realize jape was a GRRM thing. The only stuff of his I've read is his Wild Cards stuff, where I don't think he used jape, and where I also I think I gained more insight about his sexual proclivities than I cared to know. Just thought "jape" was a change from prank.

I can't spend much time w/ writers that do not exhibit a better vocabulary than I.
Grammar, now that is the toy.
