Municipal elections are coming up next week in my area, and I've been looking over the race listings. My eyes fell upon a candidate with the surname of "Hix," and I had a little giggle.
However, I don't think he's a necr... uh... lecturer in postmortem communications, and I haven't seen a photo to confirm whether or not he wears a skull ring.
Now, to go add Unseen Academicals onto the 'reread ASAP' list... I read it fairly early on, as it was one of the first audiobooks I found at my library, so I have a feeling I'll get a lot more enjoyment out of it now.
