"Captain Carrot" was also the name of a DC Comics character, an anthropomorphic rabbit who has superpowers derived from eating radioactive carrots. Captain_Carrot --RLent 17:34, 15 June 2006 (CEST)

In Thud!, Vimes says (to himself, so he's not trying to fool anybody) that Carrot is six feet three inches. Previously he's been six feet six or two meters. He's not old enough to be settling yet; how did that happen? --Old Dickens 01:07, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

The assertion about the full head of hair needs some evidence. It conflicts with Kidby's drawings and any description I can remember. --Old Dickens 15:58, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Just a thought re: discworld reasons for naming Carrot - while rereading a section of Night watch (specifically to do with the use of the Lilac flower and the Glorious Revolution) It's mentioned that in history there was once a battle where there was a rag tag of different squads covered in mud who found themselves in a carrot field and adopted the carrot as a badge to identify one another (as well as being a nourishing snack). Perhaps the carrot took on special symbology/significance relating to uniting people under a common symbol, being nourishing/doing good in general and possibly linking into leadership. Just a thought. Also, might it be worth mentioning on the main page his link to being Prince of Llamedos? --Verity (talk) 03:23, 27 November 2013 (GMT)

I am sure that it is completely coincidental that the Welsh word for carrot is moron. (Noting that the dwarves from Llamados seem to have a very welsh culture). Tag (talk) 17:52, 20 February 2023 (UTC)
