Maybe... Carpe Jugulum ? The thought of the vampires getting hooked on tea and then granny psychologically torturing them with a cup of mud always gives me a smile.
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

Guards Guards, the 6 foot dwarf, meeting Nobby and Fred for the first time.

Witches Abroad: While walking down a road paved with yellow bricks, a small farm house lands on Nanny Ogg.....

Had me rolling around.

I agree, there's some real funny bits in WA. I always chuckle at the Hotel Nova Cancies. :lol:

Touch of Monty Python's Life of Brian there (is this the Judean people's front, F.O we are the People's' front of Judea) :lol:

Pyramids. Whilst some of other books, especially the later ones , have more thoughtful storylines this one is the best at sheer inventive silliness.
Keep calm and prepare to hack!

Simon, I love you. :lol: ;)

I adore Pyramids, but you'll find that you, me, and a former poster named Pooh are about the only ones who do!

Love it in the beginning when he's putting on all his Assassin's stuff, and then falls over from the weight of it all. :clap:

I'd have to vote for Thief of Time, if only for the verbal jousts between Lu Tze and Lobsang, the Auditors' parody of Reservoir Dogs, Death's nearly fruitless attempts to convince the Four Horsemen to reunite, Death by Chocolate, and, of course, "Bikkit!"
