Nope, the humour is universal. There's even a list of annotations if you feel that you didn't get something.

Just borrow "Guards! Guards!" or "Mort" from someone, and then go through the rest. But get the British versions if possible - most of the covers are superior to the American ones.

Excelent - I will start reading as soon as I can give myself time to enjoy a good book.
Well, I had some german translations from discworld books and it was quite good understandable. The humour rocks. :)
I've always known that Hugi is made for the intellectual elite.

perhaps you ment intellectual dyslexia?
plus, what context does it have here? apart from a few entries i see only absolutely trivial literature named here, so what do you want to say - that pouet =| intellectual elite and your readers are to be found elsewhere? well then go for them and leave us alone... :P

Maybe you already know Good Omens - it's quite similar to Discworld, only faster and with a higher jokes-per-line ratio.
