Thread: Take a guess

okay I'm just killing a little time when I came across this:

’Are you Death?’

’It’s the scythe, isn’t it? People always notice the scythe.’

’I’m going to die?’


’Possibly? You turn up when you are possibly going to die?’

’Oh, yes. It’s quite a new thing. It’s because of The Uncertainty Principle.’

’What’s that?’

’I’m not sure?’

’That’s very helpful.’

’I think it means people may or may not die. I have to say it’s playing hob with my schedule, but I try to keep up modern thought.’

Can anyone tell me where this is from?
Apart from a Discworld novel - no.

Don't laugh if I'm wrong but it sounds like Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.

Comes to think of it, the first time I read this passage it did sound a bit like Bill and Ted
