Seriously though - Rinsewind is a useful character of Terry's because he can been thrown from one side of the Disc to another without any apparent harm. He seems to be indestructable and that's also useful when it comes to comedy. But his abilities allow Terry to explore the Disc without having to spend half a book getting there as most of the other characters would have to.
But that sort of almost slapstick type comedy gets a bit thin once you've read the books a few times in my opinion.
