It wasn't prearranged or anything like that. I just happened to notice the figure and though: Bloody hell! :lol:

Yes, I actually understood that Tony, I wasn't really offended that there weren't any invitations - should've put a :wink: or something behind the sad face.
But I did wonder what exactly was being discussed at that time, it must have been something really, really exiting :)
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

That was about the time that the Good Omens TV show was announced. Maybe it was that?

There's an Good Omen TV show??
Where? When? Is it any good - I mean does it do justice to the book?

Well I did wonder. :P

Seriously - I really think this was just a case of Internet Bots. We are a popular board and frequently the top search result for Google (and suchlike) searches about Pratchett and Discworld. It's the bots that get that info to people. :D

No - it hasn't been made yet. Terry and Neil Gaimen along with Terry Jones (from Monty Python) announced that it is going to go ahead. :D
