This made Ian Tregillis spit coffee all over his keyboard  
A one-R GRM is a rental equation
A two-R GRRM is a writer, Caucasian
But I would bet a can of worms
That there is no three-R GRRRM.

Um, do you have that can to hand?

(I once worked in the same building as a company called 3L: the local zoo had a "sponsor an animal" scheme, but I was unable to persuade the boss of that company of the amazing publicity they could gain worldwide by sponsoring a medium-sized South American herbivore)

EDIT: actually - your worms are probably safe enough: the defining phrase is a googlewhack, indicating the comic probably no longer exists....

Ogden Nash had the same problem; he wrote (as we all know)
And I will bet my silk pyjama
There isn't any three-L lllama.

Then a fire chief pointed out to him that a three-l lllama is a kind of fire.

(Hope this jest translates to your country!)

I don't think any worms were involved in Nash's case, though.

There's also LJ user grrrm, but I wasn't going to let a couple of outliers like that get in the way of a good poem.
