Wizard dolls in empty jars... "post humous" - the jars used to contain a common Ephebian snack food but are now empty, hence post hummus?
Used to be too clever by half, but by virtue of consistent drinking, now only too clever by about a quarter. Banned from all BBC messageboards for being too much of an "uncceptable editorial risk".

Could be - but that's a bit of a stretch even for Terry. :lol:

I'm not sure it actually in any of the books. It's just (I think) a generally Discworldy idea that was approved by Terry (as were all the Clarecraft items). I guess it's a somewhat tongue in cheek way of saying "poison" in the same way that Dibbler's dragon dectors were basically a piece of wood that, if ignited meant you'd found a dragon. :)

Thinking about it - sometimes these Clarecraft figures came with a little card with the product number and, if I remember correctly, a quote from one of the books to the relevant passage from the book where they appear.

I have this particular item and a Dibbler's compass, that I'm not sure is mentioned in the books either. :D

The Clarecraft reference is DW18.

The 18th Book in the series is, apparently, Maskerade, which probably means nothing!
