Hodgesaarrgh! I just love the way it's so natrual, everyone in Lancre knows him by that name and they call him it without thinking. Genius! Binky is good, and Note Spelling always cracks me up

I wouldn't normally write these words but I am PMSL at these. Brilliant! Man alive, Terry Pratchett is the business.

I think Imp Y Celyn in Soul Music because Pratchett uses the opportunity to inflict one of the worst puns in human history on the reader (it's sort of Welsh for Buddy Holly)
Cut Me Own Hand Off Dibbler in Omnia (Small Gods)
Adora Belle Dearheart because she is obviously spending her life trying to be the opposite of her name.
Moist von Lipwig because it sounds like the perfect name for someone like him.

:D Not a lover of the great outdoors? I used to enjoy camping but not anymore. Camping to me now is anything with 3 stars.

Dave Hodges used to turn up at all the events trying to sell his book on falconry or his industrial sized tent pegs. :lol: He's a real character.

Only trouble with Daves tent pegs once they were hammered in you almost had to dig them as demonstrated at one Wincanton spring event, he also sold a remover with them if you wanted one. :lol:

I don't know what everyone's talking about, but to go with the title, does anyone else like the name Perspicacia Tick?

I forgot about Mightily Oats! That always makes me chuckle too. And Agnes Nitt, aka Perdita X Dream.

When I got Djelibeybi I laughed for a long time. I like You Bastard, as well.
