- During Nobby's brief stint in Klatchian menswear, he remarks that his caftan is "a bit short". Being short on Nobby, who is himself very short, it would be even shorter when Vetinari wears it, as Vetinari is tall. Funny enough. But "Gulli, Gulli and Beti" are a reference to Wilson, Keppel and Beti, an Egyptian-themed dance act involving thin, lanky dudes in very short caftans◊. You might very well assume that's exactly how ridiculous Vetinari looks in his stolen caftan.
