The Universities proctors were known as lobsters because they went very red when hot and had a grip that was extremely hard to shake off. They were generally ex-army sergeants, had depths of cynicism unplumbable by any line and were fuelled by beer.

It's certainly a challenge to find ones that are a bit more difficult so how about:

The Best of Queen


Unsurprisingly this is not a Discworld offering from Terry and I have to admit is really for the completist who has all the stories to hand.

Sorry :wink: but I am willing to give hints if it looks too difficult

Good Omens? There is something in there about how all tapes left in the car turn into Queen :wink:
A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

There is something about all tapes turning into Queen in Good Omens but not as a footnote, it is the main body of the text "all tapes left in a car for more than about a fortnight metamorphose into 'Best of Queen' albums."

Nice try though
