"Bilious was created from the excess belief that spilled over when Teatime killed the Hogfather, and may no longer exist."

But if only one person truly believes in a God, then that God never dies? (ref. Brutha and Om in Small Gods ) It appears to be clear at the end of Hogfather that one person (the Tooth Fairy) truly believes in Bilious, God or not... it's nice to think that in some corner of the Disc they may be living a relatively "normal" life together, and, as Sybil Ramkin reflected, "most people seem to manage when the magic rubs off"--AgProv 11:50, 27 April 2007 (CEST)

Tried to incorporate some of this into the article. Even gods w/ no believers continue to exist (as voices on the wind in the desert), which implies that, once a god is born, he can never die (so all those lares and penates still exist somewhere... just as the gods of Djelibeybi existed quietly until the events of Pyramids) Kellyterryjones 00:04, 27 August 2007 (CEST)

Bilious is the Oh God of Hangovers and as such is officially invoked every time some hungover wretch rolls over and whimpers "oh, god". Given the drinking habits of the inhabitants of the Disk, Bilious is likely now a substantially powerful deity. Firestorm17

I always imagined that Bibulous and Bilious would be identical twins, looking like a before and after picture of the world's biggest, booziest party. -- Ericthehalfabee 14:51, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
