Rorshach Blot?

If you look closely at the black-on-white markings on the cow's rump in the Melvyn Grant illustration, is it just me, or is that a slightly distorted map of the main continental masses of the Discworld? And the cow's tail, and what lies beneath, seems quite coincidentally to map where you'd expect to find Ankh-Morpork... AgProv (talk) 02:13, 17 December 2012 (PST)

I seem to remember that this book was read by Rob Anybody I think it was in one of the Tiffany Aching books (A Hat full of Sky or Wintersmith I think) but it's not mentioned on this page. Should this be mentioned in this page, or is it already on one of the other pages? --AnnieBudgie (talk) 04:49, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

It certainly wants mentioning if you can find a reference. I don't remember it. --Old Dickens (talk) 14:07, 18 September 2016 (UTC) - Searched Google Books, didn't find it. --Old Dickens (talk) 15:47, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
user:AnnieBudgie and user:Old Dickens Page 220 of Wintersmith, in the final scene. Remember, Granny had challenged Rob earlier in the book as to what might be "heroic" for Rob or for Roland... Rob is meeting Granny's challenge by reading a book all the way through. "Where's mah coo? Is that mah coo? It goes cluck." (At the very end, Rob reads _Principles of Modern Accountancy_, but puts dragons in it.)Moishe Rosenbaum (talk) 15:31, 24 September 2016 (UTC) searching "cow" didn't work. Another mitzveh from Moishe. --Old Dickens (talk) 17:17, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
Added Wintersmith reference, the small antipodean parrot having flown. --Old Dickens (talk) 02:09, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
