The Great God Om, although currently the small god Om, ate a lettuce leaf.
All my life, Brutha thought, I've known that the Great God Om - he made the holy horns sign in a fairly half-hearted way - was a . . . a . . . great big beard in the sky, or sometimes, when He comes down into the world, as a huge bull or a lion or . . . something big, anyway. Something you could look up to.
Somehow a tortoise isn't the same. I'm trying hard . . . but it isn’t the same. And hearing him talk about the SeptArchs as if they were just . . . just some mad old men . . . it's like a dream . . .

Another great story from Terry Pratchett, this time about religious intolerance and the rise and fall of gods. It's a standalone novel, but both Death and the Death of Rats appear, as well as a probable relation of the Ankh-Morpork catering entrepreneur, Cut-My-Own-Throat Dibbler.
