A Prophet of Om, mentioned in Small Gods. The Compleat Discworld Atlas cites some of the religious teachings of the Holy Prophet. These are recorded in The Book of Om and include;

  • Blessed are the sandals, for without them feet doth burn on the hot sand and the locust doth get in between the toes.
  • Blessed is the sticky date that coateth the lips of the foolish and the wise alike, for it brings the clustering flies.
  • Blessed is the pomegranate, for it is like to the camel in that it hath a thick skin and is full of seeds.
