Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Lord Vetinari. Lord Vetinari is probably the best Patrician Ankh-Morpork has ever had, considering his predecessor was referred to as "Mad Lord Snapcase".
Sister Drull wasn't a very good cook. Windle originally thought that he shouldn't eat the patties because they were made out of human flesh. Sister Drull is a ghoul.
Killing rats. The rats died; the Death of Rats appeared.
Silver baskets on wheels. Apparently, the "city eggs" firstly become something you would want to keep, and then something that would be useful.
Dog. The Death of Rats does, in fact, end up riding a raven.
Prawns. This would not be one of the easiest questions. The continent of Xxxx (or Fourecks) is one of the main settings of the Discworld book "The Last Continent".
Reg Shoe, Shleppel, Doreen Winkings, Arthur Winkings, Windle Poons, Lupine, Drull, Ixolite, Gorper. Mrs Cake is feared by most Ankh-Morporkian religious establishments; there is no such person called "Renata von Uberwald"; Ysabell is Death's adopted daughter; Hughnon Ridcully is Mustrum Ridcully's brother; Angua has already been mentioned as a member of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch and Gytha Ogg is another Lancre witch.
the Dean. The Dean is also the one who suggests yelling out "Yo!", and continues to throughout the book - until, of course, the Archchancellor threatens to do some very cruel things to him if he says "Yo!" again (later also banning the word "Yee-haw").
Renata. Angua is a member of Ankh-Morpork City Watch and doesn't appear in this book. Esmerelda is the first name of the Lancre witch Granny Weatherwax (also not in this book) and Ludmilla is, in fact, only "human" for three weeks out of four. For the fourth week she's a wolfwoman.
Bill Door. Poor old Death.
Sal. She was the only one who saw through Bill's disguise, often calling him a 'skelington'.
Dark Enchantments. He also bought her lilies, and as diamonds were rumoured to be a girl's best friend, he also took her the biggest diamond on the Disc - the Tear of Offler.
Three-eighths Gripley. A seemingly vital part to the Combination Harvester which Bill stole in what seems to be a spot of jealousy.
Ned Simnel. Responsible for the building of the Combination Harvester.
Cyril. Also dyslexic - Death eventually set Cyril the task of learning the words.
Bill Door. He never did have much imagination really.
Ludmilla. Ludmilla was also a werewolf part of the time.
Reg Shoe. Reg Shoe - a zombie with a positive outlook for the rights of the undead.
Half past nine. Death was supposed to turn up in person to 'collect' Windle.
Windle Poons. At 130, Windle Poons was the oldest faculty member. He has a going away party in readiness for his 'departure'.
Thirteen. He realized this as he was walking around Ankh-Morpork after having not died because Death had just retired. Well, he had died, but after waiting around in his head for a while with nobody coming for him, he went back to himself.
|At the beginning of the book the men of the Ramtops dance a Morris Dance to welcome the spring. What dance do they do at the end of the book?||'Reaper Man' Random Questions
The Other Morris. They wear the other costume and the other bells (the ones made of octiron, which don't make noise but rather textured silence). There is no music. They have to do it. They have to do both or they can't do either.
|Take the liver of a certain rare fish and extract of a particular root; administer one spoonful. According to the Lecturer in Recent Runes what do you get?||'Reaper Man' Random Questions
A zombie. In a typically tangential conversation, the Lecturer is telling the other wizards how he thinks a man can be changed into a zombie.
A lawyer. He was just a man in the wholesale fruit and vegetable business when he got a letter from a lawyer saying that he was apparently the only surviving relative of his great-great-uncle who just happened to be a vampire. Now he gets pains in his leg if he even thinks about going back to the temple and has a wife that decided to be a vampiress by marriage. She sometimes forgets her accents and starts pronouncing her double-u's.
The boot. This is the Discworld's version of Monopoly. Some people will challenge Death to a game in a futile attempt to turn him away. They never win, of course, but Death does tell us that last year someone got three streets and all the utilities.
One blade at a time. As Death, Bill Door had never had the need to scythe more than one of anything at a time. He cut the grass one blade at a time, but he was completing rows faster than a man doing it swathe by swathe.
Sleep. Bill Door is, of course, Death who has 'retired' from his anthropomorphic personification position. He has never slept in his, uh, life. He was waiting for sleep to come when noticed that the light had changed and the sand in his lifetimer was lower.
Ned Simnel. Iago Peedbury owned the field where the contest took place. Duke Bottomley was one of Miss Flitworth's workers. Cyril was the dyslexic rooster.
The Chief Priest of Blind Io. We eventually learn his name is Hughnon Ridcully. In the wake of the odd events created by the unleashed life force both the wizards and priests show up at the Patrician's Palace. While the others are fighting, first verbally then physically, the two leaders of the magical and religious go aside to trade quiet opinions on the situation. The priest gets around to saying, "Incidentally, mother says you haven't written lately..."
