Snuff Things – Chronologic

Many of the significant things in this chronological 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 alphabetical order.

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

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

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

Malus equilibria – When one of this tree’s apples falls, another rises to the heavens. Makes sense, right?

Saddle Pork – Card game invented in the Year of the Stoat by the Reverend Joseph “Casuality” Robinson.

Spillikins – Game also known as pick-up sticks.

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

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

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.

Wee – A book on the subject by Felicity Beedle.

Melvin and the Enormous Boil – By Felicity Beedle. Presumably for children.

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

Little Duckling Who Thought He Was an Elephant, The – By Felicity Beedle. For the kiddies.

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

Gaston’s Enormous Problem – By Felicity Beedle. Won her the Gladys H. J. Ferguson award for the fifth time.

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

Where’s My Cow? – A favorite of young Sam. Not known to be written by Felicity Beedle however.

Wee Wee Men, The – By Felicity Beedle. Presumably about diminutive males, though with Felicity, you never know.

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

Geoffrey and the Land of Poo – By Felicity Beedle. Geoffrey seems to be a recurring character.

Boy Who Didn’t Know How to Pick His Own Scabs, The – By Felicity Beedle. Of interest to any young man.

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

Vicar is Coming to Tea and One Hundred and Twenty-seven Other Warnings of Social Embarrassment, The – By Dr. Bentley Purchase. One wonder what he was Doctor of.

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

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

Packed Shop Chop Muck Dick – A plant (used in Bhangbhangduc cuisine) that grows very well in the Shires.

Fang and Fire – Monthly periodical about dragons. Read by Colonel Makepeace.

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.”

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

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

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

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

Slab – Ammonium chloride cut with radium. Drug used by trolls. Jus’ say ‘AarrghaarrghpleeassennononoUGH’.

Slap – Nasty drug, though generally considered recreational.

Smell Preservation Society – Organized in Ankh-Morpork due to Harry King’s removal of many of its classic odors.

Dr. Varies’ Medicated Upright Mixture – “Just the job on a winter’s day.” Finish the thought yourself.

Surreptitious Albatross – Probably related to the Pointless Albatross. Wee Mad Arthur commandeered one when he needed to travel quickly and far.

Wonderful Fanny – Ship on the Quire commandeered by Stratford.

Piecemaker – Multi-shot crossbow with a 2000 pound draw. Used by Detritus.

St. Ungulant’s Fire – Feared by sailors as the precursor to a terrible storm.

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

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.)

Queen of Quirm – Captained by Captain Murderer. Used by Gravid Rust for smuggling.

Giggles, Girls, and Garters – Presumably the same as Girls, Giggles, and Garters. Just use a little imagination.

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

Roberta E. Biscuit – Captained by Captain O’Farrell. A paddle wheeler on the Quire used by the Vimes family.

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.

Makewar’s Crispy Nuts – Breakfast cereal of champions. Invented by Sir Abuthknott Makewar.

Pride and Extreme Prejudice – By Jane Gordon. Dedicated to Sam Vimes.
