Arise, sir PTerry


Death isnt on line. If he was, there would be a sudden drop in the death rate. Although it'd be interesting to see if he’d post things like: DON’T YOU THINK I SOUND LIKE JAMES EARL JONES?

Terry Pratchett knighted for services to literature
Arise, Sir Discworld

Terry Pratchett has admitted he's “flabbergasted” to be awarded a knighthood for services to literature in the New Year Honours list.

The 60-year-old Discworld scribe told the BBC: “There are times when phrases such as ‘totally astonished’ just don't do the job. I am of course delighted and honoured and, needless to say, flabbergasted.”

Makes my New Year’s Eve.
