See? You don't need to know Latin to know that "by way of a bumhole" also means "Sh*t Street" :lol:

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I loved the clown thing at the end though when you were expecting a vampire. A fun read, but not as good as Going Postal. I liked the old lady who left him the money too. And the dog of course, Pratchett is always better when he throws in a few animals.

Any chance you've been arguing with the missus? That would be a hoot!

We tend to argue over who is the designated Dishwasher, rather than the Discworld. Does this count? :D
