I have all the Discworld series, some of the children's books, the New Discworld Companion and vol 3 of the Science of Discworld. I wasn't as keen on Nation, but I am looking (I nearly typed 'ooking' *LOL*)

I think probably "Guards Guards" or "Pyramids".The tongue in cheek reference to Freemasonry in Guards Guards gave me such a belly laugh.
