A watchman snapped to attention and saluted. 'Captain Carrot, sir. We've, er, never seen so much of a wizard, sir.'
Ridcully gave him the slow blank stare used by those with acute uptakegrasping deficiency. 'What's he talkin' about, Stibbons?' he said out of the corner of his mouth.
'You're, er, insufficiently dressed, sir.'
'What? I've got my hat on, haven't I?'
'Hat = wizard, wizard = hat. Everything else is frippery.'
