** When Dip marries Caniche, he takes her last name of Chien, since, as a former wild animal, he never had a last name to give her. Or a first name, for that matter: Dip is short for [[spoiler: diploma. He was introduced as Rhonda's diploma.]]

** In Lancre meanwhile, there's a sort of tradition of matrilinearity, at least amongst witches. So when Miss Gytha Ogg got married, she became Mrs Gytha Ogg and her husband became Mr. Ogg (as did her subsequent husbands -- well, the ones that [[ReallyGetsAround were actually hers]]). Her married sons, however, are still Oggs, because none of her daughters-in-law are brave enough to explain to Nanny that they shouldn't be.

Their attitude to sexism is that it is fine to impose it on ordinary women, but that witches are, ''of course'' exempt from such rules.)
