Пратчетта в рыцари

Терри комментирует дискуссию вокруг петиции касательно дарования ему рыцарского звания:

I think that making me a knight would be extremely silly, and would therefore embrace the idea in true Chestertonian fashion by taking it seriously.  I would buy a suit of armour (and stand vigil over it, but since praying in a chapel is not my scene, maybe the Humanists would let me sit in their lobby and read Darwin. Maidens, dragons...oh, the possibilities are endless:-)
