* How about this; Nobby and Visit took the girl to the watchhouse where everyone else was celebrating, kept her warm, fed her, maybe Commander Vimes paid for her lodging to live through the winter, and five years later, she became a lance-constable in the Watch.

* Death can't give people more time ''in his capacity as Death''. Who knows what rules apply as to what the Hogfather can, or can't, award as a present?

As for the economics factor, who says that life's value equates with monetary value? Only the Assassins' Guild, and by their standards the life of some poverty-stricken little girl might rate about the same as an apple and a crudely-carved wooden toy, so it's a fair transaction.

* Susan didn't say he'd picked on girls, she said he'd looked up ''dolls' dresses''.

[[WMG: It's Albert's fault that the Oh God of Hangovers manifested where he did.]] All the other lares and penates became embodied at Unseen University, due to the localized ambient magic levels and thin reality quotient. Bilious, for no reason Susan could determine, appeared at the Hogfather's Castle of Bones instead. This wasn't merely because it's where the Hogfather ought to have been - as Susan herself noted, he ''shouldn't'' have been there on Hogswatchnight - but because it's where Death stopped to drop off the sleigh and send Albert home before going to advise Susan in her confrontation with the Auditors. To get Albert back to his own pocket reality, Death had to cancel the effect that'd held "pixie Albert"'s time suspended for Hogswatchnight, using up one or two of his servant's dwindling supply of seconds in the process. And, while Albert's honorary-pixie status had made him capable of downing more than a million sherries without exploding that night, once the effect was dissipated for those few precious seconds, the cumulative ''impact'' of those sherries - i.e. the single biggest hangover in Discworld history - slammed down on that old man for an instant. It's ''that'' which attracted the Oh God of Hangovers to manifest on that particular spot, albeit earlier chronologically than the actual mega-hangover poor Albert brought upon himself, much as the Glingleglingleglingle Fairy appeared before anyone actually wondered about him.

[[WMG: The Hogfather didn't actually skip Nobby's house when Corporal Nobbs was growing up.]] Even though they were dirt-poor, young Nobby and his brother Errol should at least have received the minimal stocking-stuffers of, say, an apple and a crude wooden toy. However, we know from ''Night Watch'' that Nobby's father Sconner was willing to steal even a ''spoon'' from his own son, so most likely their Jerkass dad was coming home in the wee hours from a night of crime and/or boozing each Hogswatchnight, and emptying his boys' stockings in order to eat or pawn the contents himself.

[[WMG: Peachy is still alive.]] The nightmare that came after him was the Scissor Man, and that particular childhood bogey doesn't actually ''kill'' children, it just cuts off their thumbs so they can't suck them anymore. Assuming he managed not to expire from sheer terror, he would've been left maimed, not dead.

I had a WMG to add to the list.
Added DiffLines:
[[WMG: Teatime removed his eye and replaced it with a scrying glass.]] If Teatime's eye is a magical artifact, it might actually be a sort of scrying glass, which would give him insight a little ways into the future, and given that he is fond of planning ahead... [[WMG: Teatime was actually kind to girls as a child.]] Teatime doesn't really react to much of Susan's mind-break speech except when Susan mentions him picking on girls. (He sort of flipped out for a second there, and it probably had to do with him actually being kind to girls when he was young.)
