Carrot, the Librarian and Death.

They're all great really, because they all come off the pages and live. (Does this make sense? I hope so).

Yes, it does make sense. When you have an active imagination, things (i.e. The Luggage, Towns) and characters DO come to life in your head. That is why I love All the writings of Monsewer Pratchett (in Oggspeak). I can be sitting and not really thinking about anything very much at all and suddenly I will smile or laugh at some memory from a book. I think it is a sign of intelligence to be able to bring images to life in your head. :D
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

I couldn't agree more Tina :D
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

I totally agree. It's probably why I enjoy descriptive jokes more than some people, because I visualize them in my minds eye.
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

I rather liked Imp Y Cellyn - he should have called his band the Perfect Vision (20/20) !

I also love the character of Cassanunda!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Susan Death. Something about a woman who can thrash a bogeyman and not have a hair out of place I find quite appealing.
