I’ve never read his books but am surely interested now.

In honor of the late Sir Terry Pratchett.

“The intelligence of the creature known as a crowd, is the square root of the number of people in it.”

Terry Pratchett



Hearts beat as one, one sweats and so does

a thousand more, very little is comprehended

when sheep congregate and baaa all around.

Baa here, baa there…nothing gets past the

dismal gaze you can feel coming from the hoard,

sheep or zombies or both, you may ask?

I say sheep, what say you?


M. Willcox on Sir Terry Pratchett

  1. Lol. Funny. I like the quote too. I know I’m going too literal here, but even the square roots of pretty large large numbers are still so low that in terms of IQ….damn. To have a crowd where the square root was a more or less normal IQ, there would need to be around 12,000 people. Below 4,900, the crowd is disabled. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Sorry, math tangent. Good write. ๐Ÿ™‚
    (One tiny thing….horde?)


  2. Nothing has looked nicer for the sacrificing than a sheep. One would think that no one would want ot be such a thing… but one is often wrong.

    I think you will love Pratchett. He will make you laugh… and scream at sheep every now and then, methinks.
