    Characters who are mentioned but never appear 

  • Anything involving Bloody Stupid Johnson, or the remarkable lateral thinking of Ankh-Morpork citizens.
    • The "Improved Manicure Device", now used for peeling potatoes at Unseen University.
    • "Retrophrenology": if the bumps in your head indicate your personality traits, then changing them will affect your character. In practice, this just means getting thumped with a variety of differently-sized hammers, but it provides work and it keeps the money circulating, and that's the important thing.
    • Archchancellor Ridcully, in Hogfather, taking a shower in a bathroom designed by Johnson. He made the mistake of pressing the tap marked "Old Faithful," and had a bit of trouble walking for a while afterwards.
      "Ye gods, I've never felt so clean."
    • The landscaping Bloody Stupid did for the palace garden, which included a 150 yard by 1 inch trout lake (home to one thin trout, who presumably would be periodically turned around by the gardeners). The perimeter is presumably denotated by a hoho, i.e. 50 feet deep haha. Claimed three palace gardener's lives, and once trapped the Head of the Assassin's Guild.
