    1. This almost seems like a quote from “Small Gods” but I can’t remember reading this particular phrase. Regardless, Terry Prachett is a goddamn genius.

      • Nah, I’ve never encountered it and I’ve read it a thousand times.

        Really should be though.

        • It’s “Hogfather.” Albert is explaining to Death yet another aspect of Hogswatch.

          The part not quoted — the … — is Death:
          YOU HAVE ME THERE.

          The next couple of lines after the quote are:

          AND YOU MEAN THAT BECAUSE OF THIS THE POOR GET POOR THINGS AND THE RICH GET RICH THINGS?

          ”sright,’ said Albert. ‘That’s the meaning of Hogswatch.’

          Death nearly wailed.

          BUT I’M THE HOGFATHER! He looked embarrassed. AT THE MOMENT, I MEAN.

          [British hardback, p. 178]
