* Moist's explanation of why there are now mongooses in the letterboxes. They were introduced to keep down the snakes, which they put there to get rid of the toads, which they encouraged because of the snails, which got there themselves to eat the stamp glue. Vetinari then notes brightly that they were saved the trouble of introducing the snails. (This is doubly funny if you know how such similarly brilliant solutions worked out in real life. Which is to say,'' very'' poorly.)

* The BucketBoobyTrap at the Fools' Guild. Or rather, the fact that Vetinari knows it's there and pushes it over, then says "It's not funny, and someone could get hurt." Then immediately afterwards there's a groan from the other side, meaning [[IronicEchoCut someone got hurt]]. But he was a Fool and it's probably part of their job.

* Moist's intro to Pucci. He gets in the first cart he sees - which happens to be a "Honey Trap" organized by Pucci (she is in a state of ''dishabille'' and is trying to get a picture of Moist with her to use as blackmail). Moist promptly jumps out the other side of the carriage... [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome while holding Mr. Fusspot in his arms]].

* When Moist receives Mr. Fusspot, the sweetly-written letter from Topsy finishes with a warning to Moist that if the dog dies of unnatural causes, '[[SophisticatedAsHell your arse will belong to the Guild of Assassins]].' Moments later an arrow crashes through his window. Written on the shaft is a slogan that reads;
