  • Cluster F-Bomb: Only by comparison to the other Discworld books, which have generally avoided outright swearing, but the repeated use of 'shit' and 'bitch' is quite noticeable.

Not sure about this. ISTR several "bitch"es in Guards Guards, including a discussion about whether this or "bastard" was more appropriate for the "king" dragon, and at least one "shit" in the same book. And let's not forget Rincewind's Catchphrase "ohshitohshitohshitI'mgoingtodie!" Or the camel in Moving Pictures known as Evil-Minded-Son-Of-A-Bitch. It might be more noticable in Snuff, but I'm not sure it's actually more prevalent.

I think the major difference is that it's used more in dialogue and done more directly as an attack. It feels less casual.

Pulled this:

  • Nutt is an orc. On the Disc, orcs and goblins are NOT the same thing, or even related.

Conversation In The Main Page, and also beside the point: goblins do get mentioned in UA, including a couple of lines that are elaborated on to form ... well, this entire book. One about them "religiously collecting their own snot, and everything else" and one about a "nest" of "pups" being exterminated.

Actually, I believe that the nest bit referred to some infant orcs found in Loko. Goblins are, indeed, mentioned several times, though, and not just because Nutt keeps getting mistaken for one.

Hasn't Gravid Rust been briefly mentioned way back, as "Lord Rust's boy" who got himself into some kind of unspecified trouble? I think it's Feet of Clay, but can't get a hold of my copy.

His name wasn't mentioned, but yes, I believe he was.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
