(Wow. That is an old button. I’ll worry about that later.)
First of all, Happy Friday 13th everybody! Be sure to hug a black cat today!
Alright, this week’s question is:
What are the funniest books you’ve ever read?
Hands down, the Terry Pratchett Discworld series. I prefer the Witches books but all of them are pretty funny. My favorite would be Witches Abroad because we get to learn more about Granny Weatherwax. No other characters will ever beat Granny Weatherwax in my opinion.
Pratchett’s writing style gives me tingles. I loved his humor. He also had this eerie habit of imparting wisdom by coming up behind it where it can’t see you coming. Wisdom gets scared and runs off if you rush it from the front. If you know what I mean…
“Blessings be on this house,” Granny said, perfunctorily. It was always a good opening remark for a witch. It concentrated people’s minds on what other things might be on this house.”
“Granny disapproved of magic for domestic purposes, but she was annoyed. She also wanted her tea. She threw a couple of logs into the fireplace and glared at them until they burst into flame out of sheer embarrassment.”
“The wages of sin is death but so is the salary of virtue, and at least the evil get to go home early on Fridays.”
“Cats gravitate to kitchens like rocks gravitate to gravity.”
“Humanity’s a nice place to visit, but you wouldn’t want to live there.”
“No. There’s a billion places like home. But only one of ’em’s where you live.”
“Granny Weatherwax was not lost. She wasn’t the kind of person who ever became lost. It was just that, at the moment, while she knew exactly where SHE was, she didn’t know the position of anywhere else.”
“Trouble is, just because things are obvious doesn’t mean they’re true.”
