** And guess what: in the next book, ''Discworld/RaisingSteam'', Moist acquires a set of railway stations as a necessary incidental detail. A possible future ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book mentioned by Pterry, ''Running Water'', may deal with piped water supplies and sewage works - more public utilities... and Adora's clacks line is the local version of the telephone company...

Adora's clacks line is the local version of the telephone company...company. All of these reflect the public utilities on a Monopoly board.

* WhosOnFirst: Because the Glooper leaks and visitors are given raincoats, Hubert replies to Moist's introduction, "I am Moist", with "Perhaps we should put the raincoats nearer the door."

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: None happen (unless you count [[AssassinOutclassin an Assassin being taken down with balloon animals]], which is at least unusual) but Vetinari discusses one.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Those dentures... cursed, or just malfunctioning? [[spoiler:FridgeBrilliance: Anoia, goddess of Things Stuck in Drawers, is in great debt to Moist for the increase in publicity he's given her. A badly-fitting pair of dentures, stuck in Cribbins' "drawers" for years, may very well be within her domain...]]

* IfItBleedsItLeads: Moist is rather annoyed that his hanging only got a paragraph in the Tanty Bugle. Vetinari notes that the editor doesn't seem to consider something newsworthy unless it involves someone found in several alleyways at once.
