i last time i read this i was actually traveling through the northern territory and alice springs and then finished the book once i was home in sydney :) a very enjoyable way to read it was i felt i was following Rincewind's journey.

i think i is a very 'british' view of australia though, i don't really know anything about rolf harris, and am glad not to!

Oh, and McCleod's daughters... but that's it! So most of the jokes went right over my head. (The ever more manic 'no worries' though... that one I got :) )

I even missed vegemite since I don't know the stuff. Can't say that it sounds like much to miss, but I was reading it and knowing there's some joke to be made, and I had no clue. (Althoug, reading it that way, it gives you a perfect idea about how ridiculous our actual world is. Nobody would fall for such an improbable thing in a story - it's only funny because it's real :) )


All you need to know about vegemite comes from John Henson of Talk Soup, "Vegemite is people. It's PEOPLE!"

(i so wish i could find the clip of him trying the stuff on air.)

On a note on the book: If I would say 'The creator-god didn't make a new bullroarer because he either couldn't (artefacts are fuzzy things) or, more likely, because he knew what consequences (bad consequences) it would have had if he would have made a new one' would you agree or disagree?
