Talk:Henry the Taupé

From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Criminology, here, seems to mean the study of criminal methods, rather than criminal law and means of apprehending criminals as we might suppose on Roundworld. This could use explanation and taupé would seem to refer to his hat (being made of real hair, mole or similar, and shinier than average; see CNRTL). The color doesn't use the accent in either language. --Old Dickens (talk) 21:00, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
Belatedly, I wonder if there's a reference to Harry The Hat (Harry Anderson), comic con man, pickpocket and grifter. --Old Dickens (talk) 04:56, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
