Interesting.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss

It must be just a massive coincidence, but there are loads of people on this site named after DW characters. :?

I seem to remember Terry saying that you could find most of the surnames of Discword characters in a phone book. :D

... There is, I have discovered, a Mr Cthulu resident somewhere in London.

His first name is Clement.

Love it! :lol: I have visions of Terry, hat on head, running for a goal down midfield and being swept off his feet in the last few feet by a large orange orangutan who had been whiling away the time climbing the goalposts.... :lol: :lol:
