Wednesday Words: Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett

“Finally one said, “It’s astonishing. Frankly astonishing. The man has actually got charisn’tma.”

“Your meaning?”

“I mean he’s so dreadful he fascinates people. Like those stories he was telling…did you notice how people kept encouraging him because they couldn’t actually believe anyone would tell jokes like that in mixed company?”

“My point is that, in some strange way, he attracts people.”

“Like a public hanging.”
