In Monstrous Regiment, when Polly and the squad were "dressed as women" and the captain said "you sir are either deformed, or you put rolled up socks down your top" :lol: bless her

Have to agree with this. Particularly "May your genitals sprout wings and fly away" :lol:

Also the Dragon Dirty Harry bit in guards guards. when it started i was like, "please let him say it, please let him say it" so when he did i couldn't contain myself.

And Granny telling lilith "When you left, I, had to be the GOOD one."

Oh! Dibbler's feng shui, telling William to put the lid down on the privy so the dragon of unhappiness doesn't fly up his bottom. And his protests that he wasn't to know there really was a dragon of unhappiness. :lol: :lol: :lol:

There's a kind of double-bounce on that one, because there really is an ancient god-form like that... look up "herms".

In the WFM ALWAY MAKES ME CHUCKLE. :mrgreen:
‘Whut’s the plan, Rob?’ said one of them.
‘Okay lads, this is what we’ll do. As soon as we see somethin’, we’ll attack it. Right?’
This caused a cheer.
Ach, ‘tis a good plan,’ said Daft Wullie.
He willnae tak' a drink! I think he's deid! , on the other hand though A Midgie in yir hand is worth twa up yir kilt.

seconded :D

When Magrat turns the door to the torture chamber into a tree (or something) in Wyrd Sisters and Nanny and Granny might even be slightly impressed.

Well as i've just finished it...........Again!

The Light Fantastic is the novel. Cohen the Barbarian is the character. Just the way he acts and fights. To be honest any desccriptive detail of him made me laugh out loud. :mrgreen:
No. I don't imagine anyone west of Bree would have much interest in "adventures."

Nasty.... Disturbing... Uncomfortable things......................Make you late for dinner.

Yes indeed! In fact the first time I noticed the vampire coming under Granny's influence. I think he says something like: "I can't be doing with that" - which is pure Granny. :lol:

If you'll be my bodyguard,
I can be your long lost pal!
I can call you Beti,
And Beti, when you call me,
You can call me Al!
:lol:

I love the way Terry slips subtle references into his books - such as Al and Beti in Jingo.

And that is also a reference to 19390s sand dancers Wilson, Kepple and Betty:
