I think nobby's comment about his brain still being back home could be referencing Douglas Adams and the nepghena proverb "Ubj rire snfg gur obql geniryf, gur fbhy geniryf ng gur fcrrq bs na Nepghena Zrtn-Pnzry."

Vimes thinks that the watch there would have been all killed without us trick. "We could have handled it with the golem officers on our side?" And vimes thinks no we couldn't we could die valiantly.................this is enough reason for what they did a surviving watch and no war Vs some extra dunk people

Nowadays the police line up and have to wait until fairly late before they are allowed to do anything.

Also these groups are perfectly capable of killing Watchmen .... without pesimal vimes would have died on second hit

I think Vir at this point is still somewhat idealistic and thinks people can change but also has basically put her off gently and also may have saved someone else from marrying her. For him to different would not be Vir or he'd have left londo long ago

The French can't pronounce the th sound most of the time. Thistle ends up as pistle, pestle, fistle
Sorry but English has nicked stuff from all over as it is the thug of languages

When saying them it's two different mouth shapes. W is a pursing of the lips like trying to kiss someone. V is more a line across but with your top teeth on your bottom lip

It was written over 14 years ago it may be the case that his daughter and friends loved pink or he's having a poke at the gender colour choices foisted on us by clothing manufacturers back then. Generalisation is how a lot of humour works, often cruelly, it lumps groups together and says that this trait epitomises this group. For example priests and children or blondes and dum. Terry's humour is more scathing and sometimes subtle at subverting tropes.
