I found an obscure reference (Wee Free Men related)

Postby Bees » Sun Jul 24, 2011 6:25 pm

Hi I'm new. :)

I think I've found an obscure reference to Discworld. I've been reading the Tiffany books again and watching cartoons, as you do, in particular I've discovered a cartoon called Adventure Time With Finn and Jake. In one episode there is a character called Tiffany. When you meet this character they are sat next to some wheels buried in the ground. Here is a very tiny picture, I was wondering what other people thought.

No idea about the cartoon.... though Pratchetphiles tend to find DW in strange and unusual places. :wink:

In Wee Free Men, Tiffany's Granny's shepherding hut (on wheels) is buried in the turf of the Downs. :wink:

Thank for the welcomes. I'm a little shocked though... I joined a forum and it's full of nice people. :shock: I'm not used to that. :lol:

I thought it was in reference to Granny Aching's hut. Tiffany always goes up to where only the wheels and the stove remain after it was burned down. They're sunken into the turf. It's a nice little homage if it's true and I don't think I would have noticed it if I hadn't been reading the books at the time.

Howdy Bees. Don't worry we'll only be nice until we have you hooked :lol:

Well spotted and it would be nice to think it is a reference

It was the Daily Bounce - a forum dedicated to people who believe the Daily Mail and insist on posting Daily Mail stories on other forums. :lol:
