Hey, I resemble that remark!

Really? The quote of the day is just a fantasy novel's rephrasing of "Those who can, do; those who can't, teach"? ;-/

Let's just hope Janath was not within earshot when Bugg made that comment, or he might get brained with a live chicken!

Incorrect. It's not even logically sound. But keep in mind - that's Bugg speaking, not Erikson.

That's not Erikson speaking alright - that's a God! ;-)

Great to see Erikson following the same fantastic set of quotes we had in "Toll the Hounds"
