(I just find the nature of a thousand elephants marching to A-M hilarious. And the fact that they filmed a single elephant and they looped the picture). ;)

elephants, a thousand ==> Destiny

(Isn't it weird how Destiny makes an appearance in COM, is mentioned in Mort, and then never happens again - at least, not as a deity?)

Yes, I think there were two reasons why. First, Destiny (in my copies, he's called Fate) was boring. Second, Sir Terry didn't want to write about the "chosen one" type even though several characters start that way - his point was to subvert the trope.

Destiny ==> YES
