Snuff Things – Alphabetic

Many of the significant things in this alphabetical list from Snuff are books, even though many of them aren’t all that significant in the grand scheme of…er…things. This page lists them in chronological order.

Ankh-Morpork Times, The – Newspaper started by William de Worde.

Black-Eyed Susan – Captained by Captain Harbinger. A paddle wheeler on the Quire used by Vimes.

Bong Can Bang Keng – A plant (used in Bhangbhangduc cuisine) that doesn’t grow well in the Shires.

Bouquet of Worms, A – By Colonel F. J. Massingham. Discusses some of the unusual practices of the goblins.

Bung Ming Suck Dog – Bhangbhangduc cuisine known to Feeney Upshot via his granny.

Cedar Frangrance Pour Hommes – Worn by Mr. Gumption. Available from Quirm at AM$15 a pop.

Crockett – Game invented at St. Onan’s in Ham-on-Rye by Jackson Fieldfair. Involves mallets, a ball, strikers, and (usually) only one tump.

Crystal Slam – Dangerous troll drug. Smuggled by Gravid Rust. May have unggue pots used in its manufacture.

Daphne and the Nose Pickers – By Felicity Beedle. Possibly a cautionary tale.

Double Thunder Snuff – Vimes mailed an empty tin of it to Vetinari.

Geoffrey and the Magic Pillow Case – By Felicity Beedle. I’d read that.

Gladys H. J. Ferguson Award – Won by children’s author Felicity Beedle at least 5 times.

Glorious Peggy – Barge on the Quire destroyed when flame met gas.

Halma – Game played on a checkered board, similar to Chinese checkers.

Iconograph – Twoflower the Tourists is the first one known to bring one to Ankh-Morpork. You’d call it a camera, but I bet your camera doesn’t have an artistic imp inside. At least, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t.

Joy of Earwax, The – By Felicity Beedle. She presented young Sam with a bound proof copy. He was overawed.

Merckle and Stingbat’s Very Famous Brown Sauce – Brought by Skrp to Vimes and the Patrician while in the dungeon. (It was supposed to be beer.)

Slap – Nasty drug, though generally considered recreational.

Sliver, Slice, Slunkie, Slurp – Along with Slab, Slide, and Scrape, some of the favorite drugs of trolls. As to the leading “s” on each…”it make dem easier to remember.”

Twenty-four Years Without Eyebrows – The memoirs of Colonel Charles Augustus Makepeace.

Unggue Pots – The goblins craft these for keeping some of their secretions and other bits. It’s probably more disgusting than it sounds.

War with the Snot Goblins, The – By Felicity Beedle. Could be a historical novel.

Wonderful Fanny – Ship on the Quire commandeered by Stratford.

World of Poo, The – Authored by Miss Felicity Beedle. The title should say it all (and perhaps more than you want to know), but Miss Beedle did write more than one book on the subject.
