I am finally reading it right now after Ape had been telling me how extremely amazingly awesome it was for a few months :P

And I totally agree. I havent finished it yet, I'm not even half way, but it cracks me up all the time! Will probably be one of my all time favorites :)

Glad you liked them. It's been a while since I read Good Omens, so seeing those two pages has made me decide to re-read it. :)
