Also I like the idea of giving this book to kids,if they read it while they are young then when they grow up they'll see references to one of their favourite childhood stories when they read Discworld.
There may however be concern over a generation of kids who go around shouting "Bugrit!"
I would be ecstatic if the kids 'round here only shouted "bugrit" instead of what they normally shout!Tonyblack wrote:I got addicted to the wossname, parrot in Eric and kept saying "wossname" all the time.
I still use "wossname" when I can't think of a word, and for some reason "oojimaflip" when describing an item. I have absolutely no idea where that one came from and still wonder why I get strange looks when I say it.
I used to say oojimaflip a lot when I was a teenager.
