This Fanwork has examples of the following:
- Band of Brothels: Mrs Sandra Battye has in fact secured Guild status for the other sort of Seamstress, the type that actually mends clothes, and is naming it the Guild of Prostitutes.
- Deadpan Snarker: Sandra. Perhaps also Vetinari.
- Refuge in Audacity: Sandra Battye's reasons why her Guild should have that name.
- Unusual Euphemism: Sandra manages to subvert this and subvert it again.
