On a small sidenote: Could it be that LC is one of the only around 5 books with full frontal nudity in it? (as in, it does get mentioned directly someone's naked)

Not to mention Liessa in The Colour of Magic, at least once she prepares to give Hrun his final test, if you know what I mean. In fact, I didn't know what 'priapic' meant until later, so I didn't understand what they meant when they called Hrun priapic (presumably under his loin cloth).

And don't forget, Ridcully was technically naked in Hogfather when he used the Bloody Stupid Johnson Shower.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

So what you're saying Del is, if TP was an ozzie, there'd be no gay reference with the word "bugger." :lol:

A thousand other quite explicit terms for that Pooh.... its a morphed thing... because "bugger" is used so socially for everything else. Its not even considered a bad thing when kids say bugger (because the alternative is far worse). Its not used like that here.
