Carrot - Love Him or Hate Him?

Postby poohbcarrot » Tue Feb 10, 2009 2:46 pm

The besmirching of Captain Carrot by certain individuals on this site (without naming names, but you know who you are Tony and Jan) is tantamount to blasphemy.

He is the Discworld's one and only true superhero.

So let's see just how far the rot has set in.

You've only given us the choice of hating him or thinking he's ok. What about those few poor souls who think the sun shines from certain parts of him. :lol:

Edit - you changed it while I was writing. :P

You were too quick there Tony. The first time I put the "I love him" choice in the "Poll question" by mistake, but changed it within a minute.

Edit: Yes I did.

What? He's something you're desperate for when you are living in a foreign country and if you hit him on the head for a long time he turns white? :P

The character I don't like is Colon. He's a bully, he shouts at people, he's completely useless and a give him a little bit of power and it goes to his head.

(so in fact he's just like a normal a policeman then!)

And I'll see your :wink: and raise you a :D

I can't knock what he has done for the Discworld but think they are more interesting characters, he is too good be nice to see him lose his marbles or claim the throne now that would be interesting

And I'll see your :D and raise you a 8)

Well thanks Poohb :) I see Fred as more of an ordinary bloke who just gets out of his depth if put under pressure and his shouting gets respect from the lower ranks.
I think the answer lies in the soil, ooo arrr!

I put my hands up and freely admit I voted 'love Carrot'
:D As Poohbcarrot said on the other thread he's done a lot for discworld and you need all types to make it work.
I think he's cleverer than he appears:D
And what's so wrong with being nice all the time????

Carrot's OK. I don't like Vetinari very much.
Best wishes,

I do love Carrot. He really shone in the first couple of watch books. But just because he doesn't have anything else to add, doesn't mean we should hate him! Sir Terry doesn't use him much now anyway.

*makes strangling gestures in pooh's directions* :P :twisted:

Did I say I hated him? - NO! He's too bland and boring that's all and not worth a decent emotion like hate or love come to that.

So I voted 'he's OK' - for the record :P

What I actually said was that he's vital to how the Watch functions (or dysfunctions) despite being a boring great lump of a goody-goody (or words to that effect - I can't get into the other thread to quote for some reason :x )

Pooh - see you back in that fight thread! :wink:

Now it's working! *shakes head at misbehaving index page* :evil:

Jan Van Quirm wrote:*bites* He's a pain in the butt! :twisted: What the hell Angua sees in him I have no idea... :P

And THEN I said this -
Jan Van Quirm wrote:I'll agree he's a vital part of the Watch - as in he's the only one with true moral fibre which of course lets all the other misfits' idiosyncracies shine out. So necessary but way too boy scouty most of the time... :wink: I inlcude Vimes and Angua as misfits BTW even though they are the movers and shakers because they are both in their own maverick and skewed way unconventional but instinctive cops.


OK? Yes he is :P
