Things We Saw Today: Celebrate Christmas With the Hogfather


Discworld‘s Mort Death as the Hogfather as a cake. By Jo Orr of Ciccio Cakes. (That’s Nerdalicious)

  • The Name “Cheese” Is Becoming More Popular For Babies. “More popular” in this case means that nine babies in the U.S. were blessed with the name Cheese in 2013, compared to two babies last year. I honestly don’t know what to say about this. (That’s Nerdalicious)
  • Peter Jackson swears that as soon as he’s done with the Hobbit trilogy he’ll start work on the Tintin sequel. Really. He swears. (Indiewire)
  • The manga Death Note is being turned into a musical. Sorry, but it’s only set to run in Japan and South Korea. (Alternatively, if you are a Death Note fan reading this site who lives in Japan or South Korea: Congratulations!) For those who exist in the center of the venn diagram that is Death Note fans and musical theater fans, Anime News Network has some potentially interesting news for you on who’s making this thing.

    But where is Susan?

    At the risk of showing myself up as an incurable pedant, I believe that’s Death, not Mort.

  • Nigel Bradley

    Yep, Mort might have done Death’s job for a while, but the skeleton bit was optional. Plus *spoilers* he was kinda dead himself by the time Hogfather began…

  • WheelchairNinja

    The original entry on the creators’ Facebook page lists him as Mort, so they’re to blame for the mix-up. Although I’m pretty sure the other horsemen of the apocalypse called Death “Mort” as a nickname in The Light Fantastic, so we *could* give them the benefit of the doubt and say they were making an obscure reference… ;)

  • Vetinari

    Having none of this nonsense, I assume.

  • Madeleine Odowichuk

    I’d like to think that, but probably just a mistake. I would love to see a Hogfather Ornament that looks like that cake.
    HO HO HO

    Now we just need a Death of Rats cupcake topper.

    If it makes you feel any better, I scrolled down to the comments for the sole purpose of being just as pedantic.

    Our Death of Rats figurine is the cutest thing in the dresser.
