I generally enjoyed reading Terry Pratchet's Interesting Times but I found it an interesting reflection of my smoffishness that the part that really made me laugh out loud was this following bit where Cohen and his "hord" of seven old men are considering an upcoming battle.

Mr. Saveloy tried to shut out the whispers behind him.
"Why don't we just invite them to dinner and massacre them all when they're drunk?"
"You heard the man. There's seven hundred thousand of them."
"Ah? So it'd have to be something simple with pasta, then."

Of course, I've always liked the Silver Horde's response to the idea of being attacked by 100,000 (wasn't it?) men: Well, it's alot like being attached by 100. Only about 10 or so can get around you at one time... "Yeah, but there's always MORE left, while YOU'LL get tired!" Yeah, but so will they. They'll be running uphill! I can't remember it to quote, but I LOVE the sentiment.

And before you sigh and gripe and think "My GOD! Isn't there SOME Pratchett book this loser HASN'T read, the answer is: several, actually. Now, DISCWORLD books on the other hand? No. Well, I've heard of one, a Young Adult Discworld book that came out recently... two, if you count "Maurice and his Amazing Rodent's," or whatever, then, I guess. Oh, whatever, I dunno... I was working towards a point and just... BAH! Bogged down in details again!
