He That Hath No Sword
I just finished the illustrated version of Terry Pratchetts book "The Last Hero". It's a bit pricey, compared to an ordinary paperback, but think of it as getting about 40 or 50 really nice pieces of art, with Pratchetts acerbic wit thrown in for free. It deals heavily with the Gods of Ankh-Morpork and their dealings with the mortals there, which brings me to this bit of artwork:
I can't help but think that He must be having a warped sense of humor to hand a nice rifle to a man who has obviously sold not just his cloak, but every stitch of clothing he owns, without a magazine or a single round of ammo. Especially knowing how hard ammo is to find these days. Oh well, it's the thought that counts.
