Does the fact that "Upsidazi" is also a Norwegian colloquialism (pronounced Oops-ee-daisy, roughly), translated roughly: "Oops, that was unintentional" warrant mention somewhere? krikkert (Talk) 10:46, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

possibly, since oops ey daisy is a rather old english colloquialism as well. But then if you explain every pun in pratchett you'd be there for a very long time --Richard december 7 19:41


The list of appearances is incomplete. Lu-Tse has a significant role in Night Watch as well as a few cameo appearances (eg, Going Postal I think --- need to check). Mooncow 22:47, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

--There's a sweeping elderly monk in Going Postal, and there's no reason to mention him as being in the scene, except as a cameo. I added it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:37, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

If it can't be verified that it is Lu-Tse in Going Postal, we cannot assume that "old man with broom" = Lu-Tse. Slavlin (talk) 16:55, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Cosmopilite vs Cosmopolite[edit]

Mrs Cosmopilite is the correct spelling not Cosmopolite. Just checked it in Moving Pictures. Wikipedia finds her with Cosmopilite, but in the Lu-Tze Article the wrong spelling is very prominent! I didn't check in other articles.

Source: Moving Pictures, Harper Torch page 330.

Could it be that there's a difference in British and American editions?Hoerzig (talk) 19:57, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

-- Sources: Moving Pictures: "And Mrs Marietta Cosmopilite of 3 Quirm Street, Ankh-Morpork…" Witches Abroad: "Hence, for example, the Way of Mrs Cosmopilite… No. 3 Quirm Street…" Soul Music: "You can get them up at Mrs Cosmopilite's dress shop." Thief of Time: "It is the Way of Mrs Marietta Cosmopilite, 3 Quirm Street, Ankh-Morpork, Rooms For Rent, Very Reasonable." … "…you wish to learn instead the Way of Mrs Cosmopilite?" etc. She's mentioned a lot in that one.

Also there was an inconsitency in this article, she's called Cosmopolite and Cosmopilite.

I'll change it to Cosmopilite Hoerzig (talk) 10:07, 9 October 2008 (UTC)


I missed the discussion, but it would make more sense to merge it to History Monks (which I notice already has a fairly lengthy peice about him). Part of the purpose of pages about Discworld groups is to stop the Discworld characters page getting too long. Daibhid C (talk) 17:03, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
