Talk:Sally von Humpeding
this article should contain spoiler warning for a while. nevertheless, it is a very fun article to read. thank you for writing it up.
Sally appears quite soon in the book. It'd be nice if no spoilers are included, but on the other hand, it's not as if the innocent reader is likely to stumble along. I haven't gotten beyond page 100 yet, so I don't even know how much spoilers are coming up :) --Sanity 18:56, 28 Sep 2005 (CEST)
Is Sally serial already??
She isn't, of course. But considering that she is a pretty major character in Thud!, I think it's reasonable to give her an entry; we also learn a great deal more about the abilities of vampires through her. Given what is revealed near the end of the book, one wonders if she will stay on in the Watch. --Neddy 04:33, 2 October 2006 (CEST)
Lots of reasons, perhaps: by the end of Thud!, she has developed a sort of loyalty to Vimes, who anyway has told her that HE will decide if she leaves the Watch? (Vimes has realised she is a good copper and he is as reluctant to lose a good copper - her other associations notwithstanding - as a limpet to let go of its rock). She is quietly infatuated with Carrot and might find it hard to go, for this reason. She has also started to develop a friendship, of sorts, with Angua. (The classical police-show cliche is here, of the odd couple forced to partner each other, who begin in barely concealed hostility, but settle their differences and become firmly bonded)
I'm also thinking that there's a Monty Python running joke about a German with an incredibly long name, a minor 18th c composer called von this und that und ..und..und...zu..und..von....auf for at least a full page....
got it! The full name of the esteemed composer runs
Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Panties...I'm sorry...Schumann, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Bach. Names that will live for ever. But there is one composer whose name is never included with the greats. Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern- schplenden- schlitter- crasscrenbon- fried- digger- dingle- dangle- dongle- dungle- burstein- von- knacker- thrasher- apple- banger- horowitz- ticolensic- grander- knotty- spelltinkle- grandlich- grumblemeyer- spelterwasser- kurstlich- himbleeisen- bahnwagen- gutenabend- bitte- ein- nürnburger- bratwustle- gerspurten- mitz- weimache- luber- hundsfut- gumberaber- shönedanker- kalbsfleisch- mittler- aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm? To do justice to this man, thought by many to be the greatest name in German Baroque music, we present a profile of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern- schplenden- schlitter- crasscrenbon- fried- digger- dingle- dangle- dongle- dungle- burstein- von- knacker- thrasher- apple- banger- horowitz- ticolensic- grander- knotty- spelltinkle- grandlich- grumblemeyer- spelterwasser- kurstlich- himbleeisen- bahnwagen- gutenabend- bitte- ein- nürnburger- bratwustle- gerspurten- mitz- weimache- luber- hundsfut- gumberaber- shönedanker- kalbsfleisch- mittler- aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm. We start with an interview with his only surviving relative Karl Gambolputty de von Ausfern... (fades out)

Although not outright said, it's at least implied that Sally has switched her blood craving to fruit & veg. EG; her prepared "garlic" clove & the demand for an apple to bite after being down the mine. --Cora 22:13, 3 December 2011 (CET)
Although the argument for Sally Bowles is pretty good, I didn't care for the rather dumpy Liza Minelli playing a young Vampire. A better visual finally struck me: Jean Seberg, in brunette mode, perhaps as in Breathless. --Old Dickens 20:47, 24 June 2011 (CEST)
But then her original face, in I Am A Camera, was Julie Harris: not bad either. --Old Dickens 21:05, 24 June 2011 (CEST)

On the name
Trans-Neptunian object/dwarf planet 120347 Salacia was discovered at the Palomar observatory in 2004. Amateur astronomer Terry Pratchett probably noticed. --Old Dickens (talk) 02:10, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
