Rust, Lord => Drumknott

(I just had a very silly thought. What if Done It Duncan had brother in the Fools' Guild, whose Foolish name was Pun It Pumpkin?

All right, obviously my brain's completely fried now. Time for bed! Zzzzzzzzz...) ;)

Alas, poor Pumpkin Punnett. If only his parents had understood that when his name was written down as Punnett, Pumpkin, the registrar misspelled "Punnett", he might not have been consigned to the worst jobs. People who are not in the Fools' guild are allowed to invent new puns.

Drumknott => Teach

Roland => Doc

(I think one of the rules about gambling on Discworld is to never gamble against someone named Doc? Please correct me if I'm wrong) :)

Who is Carding? *confused* Or do you mean carding a sheep (which Rincewind does in XXXX)? :)

Carding => Doc ;) Damn tree! Who put that damn tree there? :mrgreen:

(Granny yells that towards the beginning of Witches Abroad) ;)

Carding was the wizard who caught on quicker than some of the others in Sourcery, when Coin arrived.

Yahoo was invented by Swift in Gulliver's Travels as the name of a type of utterly uncivilized and uncivilizable humanoid beings who were used as beasts of burden by a civilization of horses. It also exists as a pejorative description of uncivilized humans, sometimes called yobbos in the UK.

out-of-order => Ridcully
