Although I say it myself, this is a rather good fan-fiction story that expands on the nature of the Watch gorgon and describes the problems of being a gorgon in the bustling city of Ankh-Morpork (too many mirrors, the need to wear sunglasses at all times, and the metal used for deodorant cans is far too thin)

Tee-hee and guffaw. Top form from the Member for Stockport (the article, I mean. The story wants any amount of editing and I've always thought Stilton was the gods' greatest gift to the human palate). --Old Dickens 05:29, 17 April 2011 (CEST)

Why assume that when "the Wizards managed to turn them back again" it means Stibbons? The creative hubbub (which probably needs its own page) has worked for millennia, the Library has books on everything, and some of the other Wys-arses are pretty clever on their own. I agree that Ponder is a polymath, but is he the answer to every problem in Ankh-Morpork? If so, Vetinari would either have him terminated with extreme prejudice or locked in a light airy room with all the bits and pieces he wanted to work on. --Knmatt 11:39, 17 April 2011 (CEST)

I know - the story needs pruning! I'm afraid I'm going to have to lose the "Cheese Shop" homage, which sprang naturally on from the business about bazoukis, and the whole piece needs a rewrite to tighten it up and lose extraneous words. What you are looking at is the original stream-of-consciousness version that flowed forth in the space of a single afternoon... any opinions expressed about cheeses are purely those of the characters and do not reflect views held by the Author. who quite likes stilton himself. --AgProv 20:24, 17 April 2011 (CEST)

And point taken about Ponder - as the most sensible woizard his name is automatically in the frame for these things, but there's nothing here Ridcully could not have done. I will address this in the rewrite! (thank you for truly useful criticism).--AgProv 20:32, 17 April 2011 (CEST)
