I got 18 - Hogfather is my least favourite book so of course I didn't get the last pig - I forgot the Frogbit thing - and I also forgot what the other Q I got wrong was... ah yeah Horace Wotsit :roll:

I also tried to get Gaspode for the character (who is my absolute hero in the world of fiction ever ever!) just for the hell of it, even though I knew he wouldn't be an option *growls but ends up coughing* and got this v. interesting result.... :shock:

Cohen The Barbarian
75%
Commander Samuel Vimes
75%
Esmerelda (Granny) Weatherwax
69%
Gytha (Nanny) Ogg
69%
Rincewind
69%
Lord Havelock Vetinari
44%
Carrot Ironfounderson
31%
The Librarian
25%
Greebo
19%
Death
0%

With the tie-break I got Vimes and I think that's actually quite accurate since Gaspode has v. sensitive tootsies as well - he just moans about them more and tries to get carried as much as possible (preferably by Angua who I think should definitely throw Carrot over for him :lol: )

If I'd done it properly I'd of course have got Granny or possibly Vetinari who are my next fave characters. This consistent descent into megalomania is quite worrying... :roll:

Was surprised by the result...

You Scored as Carrot Ironfounderson
You are Captain Carrot Ironfounderson of the City Watch in the greatest city on the Disc – Ankh-Morprok! A truly good natured, honest guy, who knows everyone, and is liked by all. Technically a dwarf, but only by adoption. You’d rather not be reminded that you are the true heir to the throne, but that does explain why people naturally follow your orders…

AtTEN-shun that Dwarf! *does raspy Vimes voice* :lol:

I thought that quiz was fairly easy to 'fix' even if I didn't get Gaspode - I left threats on the comments board :evil:

Ups, 19... :oops:
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

You Scored as Death
You are death! Reaper of souls! Riding your horse, Binky, with a scythe at hand. Always working, always busy… You sometimes try to socialize with the living, and ALWAYS SPEAK IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.
If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

Thud! is a great book - one of the best in my opinion. And I've got it uploaded to my MP3 player and have spent many happy hours listening to it while heading to and from Tucson. :wink:
