Vetinari is just the coolest character EVER. I love him, and as you said, he has the best lines. Clever, and often slightly sarcastic.

Really? I thought you got it.

"It was said that he (Vetinari) would tolerate absolutely anything apart from anything that threatened the city [footnote: And mime artists. It was a strange aversion, but there you are. Anyone in baggy trousers and a white face who tried to ply their art anywhere within Ankh's crumbling walls would very quickly find themselves in a scorpion pit, on one wall of which was painted the advice: Learn The Words.]"

Oh- LOL- sorry, I have read so many of them I must have forgotten that passage. Which book was that in?

Not Sure. According to [link] it's in Guards! Guards! - but I thought it was earlier than that.

It was a long time ago and kind of obscure but for some reason the joke has stuck with me all these years :)

Hail Vetinari! Man... I just re-read this passage today in "Wit and Wisdom". Amazing.

ninereeds-DA Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2008

Ah it's included in Wit and Wisdom - I haven't read that yet - does it say which book the line is originally from? I'm just finishing reading 'Making Money' - lots of Vetinari in this one :)

SiriEx Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yup. It's organized by book. It even has quotes from Making Money! It's very good.

I loved all the Vetinari in Making Money. He's one of my favorite characters next to Nobby and Death.

Cool. I must get a copy. Death I like a lot, Nobby not so much - I prefer Sam Vimes. :)

It's quite an obscure reference to a character from the Terry Pratchett Discworld books and their dislike of mimes.
