* It's a proven fact that dogs react to body language and vocal tones. Moist was confident in his ability to command the canines the other mailmen set on him, manifested no fear and was authoritative, which prompted the dogs to obey the "dominant male" in spite of their breed being misidentified.

them not actually understanding the commands he issued.


** Just this tropers opinion - No. Vetenari would not disrespect those who died like that. And Carcer doesn't believe in angels.
** Plus from a practical point of view Carcer is uncontrollable. Vetenari can take steps to contain Moist and ensure that he does a good job, Carcer is much more of a wild card, you let him loose and he's liable to start murdering people for fun. Not to mention that employing him would be almost guaranteed to turn Sam against Vetenari if he ever found out.
*** 'Almost' nothing. If Vimes found out that Vetenari let a cop-killing psychopath (who directly threatened Vimes' family) back out into the world, he'd depose Vetenari himself.

Added DiffLines:

** A funny thing said by Anghamarrad about Lela was the fact she was [[IncrediblyLamePun fuming]] because the Rain god always rained on her lava. Adora Belle ''smokes'', and ''Moist'' enjoys riling her a bit. Looks like they found each other.

* Why is Moist so much more of a despicable person in the movie than the book? The book is written from his perspective. He's a slightly UnreliableNarrator, and would interpret things positively for himself. The movie is an objective third person.

* Since this book establishes that particularly-talented condemned prisoners occasionally get "executed" and transferred to positions that suit their talents, this retrospectively raises the possibility that [[Discworld/NightWatch Carcer]] is currently running a civil service job somewhere in Ankh-Morpork.

* Why does the mail choose Moist as their avatar, when they had several other candidates to choose from? When Moist is lost in the post office and discovers how the other postmasters died, he decides to say his FamousLastWords again: "I commend my soul to any god that can find it." The mail, sort of a godlike entity at this point, ''was listening''.

Added DiffLines:



* Vetinari's speech about believing in angels makes a lot more sense when you realize that the word "angel" is derived from the word for ''"messenger"''.
