It was in The Light Fantastic

‘Yes, yes,’ said Bethan, sitting down glumly. ‘I know you don’t. Rincewind, all the shops have been smashed open, there was a whole bunch of people across the street helping themselves to musical instruments, can you believe that?’
‘Yeah,’ said Rincewind, picking up a knife and testing its blade thoughtfully. ‘Luters, I expect.’
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

String 'em up I say. It shouldn't be too hard to drum up some support.

Exactly. Fiddling around with words is key. Board is what we'd be otherwise. If I had a gun, then I could subject the uninitiated to a hurricane of puns at gunpoint. I'd call it my "Glock 'n' Speil". :-D
