‘Coffee beans coated in chocolate,’ breathed Susan.  ‘They should be outlawed!’

The two women watched in horror as Lu-Tze put one in his mouth.  He gave them a surprised look.

‘Quite nice, but I prefer liquorice,’ he said.

‘You mean you don’t want another one?’ said Susan.

‘No, thank you.’

‘Are you SURE?’

‘Yes.  I’d quite like liquorice, though, if you have any…’

Terry Pratchett, “Thief of Time”
(THIS JUST IN LU-TZE IS NOW THE BEST CHARACTER.)
