Twurp's Peerage[]

Twurp's Peerage is the directory of all the nobility of Ankh-Morpork and its satellites, describing their lineage and titles. It is a takeoff on Roundworldl's Burke's Peerage. In colloquial English, "berk" and "twerp" are both pejorative names for an obnoxious, silly person. Berk was originally the cruder of the two deriving from the 1930s as a shortened version of Berkeley Hunt, the fox hunt based at Berkeley Castle, in Gloucestershire for the upper crust. In Cockney rhyming slang, hunt is a rhyme for cunt, giving the word its original slang meaning. It lists the positions of Lady Sybil, Lord De Worde and Lord Rust without moral judgement.
