** In ''Discworld/TheShepherdsCrown'', Tiffany Aching wonders briefly why the Feegle are collecting the hardest substance known to man, toenail clippings from old people. As [[{{Squick}}]] the idea is so disgusting]], she shudders and moves on. Later in the book, she realises they are exploiting the semicircular clippings as battle boomerangs and using other fragments as edged blades... [[note]]In Irish mythology, the battle-goddess Morrigan apparently did use her fingernails as throwing weapons, capable of decapitating somebody if they hit.[[/note]]

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', the idea of Dwarf Bread is taken UpToEleven as so utterly stale and inedible that it gets used as munitions. Boomerang Croissants are mentioned as a sort of useful throwing weapon capable of stunning a troll.

* Boomerang, in truth, refers to a number of related items. The returning boomerang, being the most familiar, was probably never meant for this. While a skilled bushman can hit a bird with it if they catch it unawares, it's more practical to toss one over tall grass or through tree leaves to startle quarry out of hiding and then use more practical weapons. As mentioned above, actual weapon boomerangs, used in fighting or hunting, are heavy, wooden clubs with a slight curve and maybe an edge that are more precise. They weigh around 2 kg (4.4 lbs), and at a range of 100 m can be fatal.
