When she gets a bit older,she will no doubt understand it´s a swearword (kids have quite a good radar for that)

I´m interested to see if she will twist that round the,saying "digger" instead of bugger when she swears.Thats okay,then.

"Oh,digger!"

My sister took her adorable baby boy by plane from Mackay (North Queensland) to Adelaide (South bit of Australia) to visit my parents one year.

He had JUST learnt his first word (awwwwwwww!) he WAS the most gorgeous baby and everywhere they went people stopped them. Well when they got on the aircraft and were in the air, the stewards picked him up off her and took him around to all the passengers to show him off.

And as they stopped to show him to passengers he would smile his biggest smile at them and say loudly and clearly "SHIT!" :laugh:

:eek: :eek: My sister and her husband were over the top of the seats yelling "JET! Yes... JET! :laugh: Heh heh... its his first word and we told him he was going on a JET! JET! heh heh... he can't talk properly yet... JET!"

"Shit!"

JET! JET! Yes darling... its a JET! :eek: :oops:

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Wanna know what his second word was? "TRUCK! TRUCK! He's saying TRUCK!" (and this time he WAS saying Truck.... but everyone gave them curry after the JET incident. :laugh:

I think it's a brilliant idea to place it alongside Thud in libraries and even bookshops.

Lol my friends son is 4. all of us are big gamers and he got into it when he was 2. Left for dead 2 was his favorite until they got Gears of war 3. he's actually very good at it, considering. last time i was at their place me and him were playing against his mom and dad, us in the bedroom, them in the living room. now he never does this with them but every time he died he would slam his fist on the bed and yell "Damn!"

It was all i could do to keep from rolling right there every time he did it.

I'd love to get WMC, i'd even read it to my kid. The best part about here is no one knows what bugger is so he/she can say all he/she wants :laugh:

A year or more ago I brought a coffee cup with a cow pic on the side.... it has alwyas been my "Wheres My Cow" mug and in fact that cry would echo around the house when I was looking for it if one of the girls used it. "Wheres My Cow?" :laugh:

It has a large chip in it. I shall have to throw it out. :( So sad.

I just HAD to post under this book (even if it might not be entirely relevant). I bought "Where's My Cow?" when my wife was pregnant with our first boy (now aged 2) with the hope of enjoying it with him and introducing him to the Discworld at a very young age. I've been reading it to him since he was a few months old and now that he's a bit older he loves it! He asks me to read it every night and laughs out long to the parts about Foul Ole Ron and Coughing Henry. I can't tell you all how much joy it brings me to see him enjoying the work of an author who has had such a profound impact on my own life and whos humour and imagination have helped me through some of the more darker times in my life! AMAZING (said the Gruffalo...but that's another story...) :laugh:

That's great Ponder! Obviously a child with taste. ;)

Maybe you need to get The World of Poo now as well. :laugh:

WHAT is my cow? It has long horns growing backwards. It's definitely a cow and not a bull as I can see huge udders from the rear. It appears on the front of Where's my Cow but I've never seen it in the home of milk and honey (New Zealand) where I now live. In short, What's my cow?

Welcome Stephanie from New Zealand! :laugh:



I have no idea what the cow is. Have you seen how many different breeds of cattle there are in the world? o_O And that's our world. Gods knows how many they have on the Discworld.

Maybe a Lancre Longhorn? :laugh:

I found it on the Internet. It's the cover artwork without all the writing. :)

I really love it too! Fantastic - a Lancre Longhorn, that's what it is now. I've spent heaps of time staring at cows bottoms, as you do, since mooving here. Still vegetarian though.
