    Just when I think modern society doesn’t have a chance, Digger explains Wombat culture. And I regain a glimmer of hope for 21st century humanity.

  2. DaveP. says:

    Nice Pratchett reference.

  3. jursamaj says:

    Pratchett: that’d be hedgehogs, not wombats. 🙂

    Oh, I know, in know, you mean the witches.

  4. TekServer says:

    Clearly I’m going to have to read this Discworld thing someday …


  5. BunnyRock says:

    Yes TekServer. Down that path madness lies. But so does a lot of company, and reasonable amounts of beer. Don’t ask about the song with the hedgehogs though…

    Also, the “I have Fur. Who cares if i have warts?” line still makes me laugh as hard as the first time i saw it.

  6. BoardEntity says:

    what do you burn besides witches?


  7. werepixi says:

    OMG Tekserver if you have not read Pratchett Discworld series then you have bypassed one of the best series of novels in existence.

    Seriously put down everything else and go read them…now

  8. Lord the 22nd says:

    I fail to see the Discworld reference here, but I haven’t read all the books. And while I’m curious as to the complete lyrics of the infamous ‘Hedgehog Song’, I’m to scared to look for them.

  9. TekServer says:

    I have now listened to several Discworld audiobooks – I haven’t finished all of them, but I’m working on it – and I’m now familiar with the hedgehog song.

    I will say that calling Discworld a series is… somewhat misleading. It is all by one author (as far as I know), and it is certainly a SETTING. I think it is more accurate to say that there are several different series contained within it, all overlapping and interconnected, but reasonably distinct. I mean you have the city watch, and Death, and the witches, and the wizzards, and characters from the other series (plural) are all only bit players in whichever series the book you are reading at the moment happens to be.

    All of which to say that one shouldn’t judge Discworld, positively or negatively, by any one book. Except for the footnotes… those are pretty consistent across everything.
