The recent trend to descriptivism (I know what I mean: figuring it out is your problem) includes the redefinition of the VanDyke (a trimmed beard with moustache surrounding the mouth) as a goatee (a tuft of hair hanging from the chin, like a goat, or the depiction of Uncle Sam). The text doesn't seem to name Vetinari's beard or Cosmo's but the illustrations have always shown a closely-mown VanDyke. --Old Dickens (talk) 04:46, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
