Welcome butterflea :D Have read Good Omens it's fantastic :D
Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.

Granny'd say it's "a lot of white that got grubby."
Good Omens is a wonderful, eye-opening read about good v. evil.

Yup, have read it. My introduction to Neil Gaiman in fact.
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.
