A Quirmian term used to describe a certain type of opera performance.

While Nanny Ogg, with her certain gift for languages, translates it as Big Guignol, the accepted Discworld translation is blood all over the stage.



Roundworld comic Spike Milligan first used the Nanny Ogg style of translation in The Goon Show and in his comic writings.
