Ok - to save me sending PMs all evening.

Love in a canoe = f***ing close to water.

Oh ... :? Well, that clears that up ...
I would put the lead pipe one but it's too long to explain but it's after Juliet kisses the coach driver to get to Sto Lat ... after her kiss he says
: That was pretty much a lead pipe! :lol:

My son is just reading Men at Arms again, and reminded me of my favourite bad pune (or play on words)
Death to Bjorn Stronginthearm after he's shot with the gonne...

"so you could say you'll be Bjorn again"
genius, and even better cause he doesn't get it! :lol:

Edited to refer to the right book :(

Also in Soul Music the Dean became "a rebel without a pause".

Also in Soul Music, the Llamadosian song that gets sung at the concert, 'Sioni Bod Da' is Welsh for 'Johnny Be Good'.

Llamedos itself is 'sod 'em all' spelt backwards. This is a pun on the Dylan Thomas poem 'Under Milk Wood' where the town is called 'Llareggub' which is 'bugger all' spelt backwards.

And don't forget the country of Hersheba, which sounds a lot like this chocolate.*

* I use the word 'chocolate' in the loosest sense of the word here. :lol:

I love the references to being hung up by your figgin.

the names in Pyramid for which I can not remember the spelling but are basically

jellybaby - Djelibebi

And I have taken to reading pretty much all of Sir PTerry's names backwards to check them out.
