The Honest Book of Truth is a text that is not only thought to be a source of reference for Malaclypse the Younger, but also verses of the Bible rearranged under specific categories. The text was thought forever lost, taken away by The Agents of Greyface, although portions appeared in Principia Discordia.  But then its continuing existance was revealed by Dr. Robert Newport to Adam Gorightly. It is now included in Historia Discordia.

And it came to pass that on the fifth night he dreampt, and in his Dream he had a Vision, and in this Vision there came unto him a Messenger of Our Lady who entrusted to him a Rigoletto cigar box containing many filing cards, some of them in packs with rubber bands around, and upon these cards were sometimes written verses, while upon others nothing was written.   Thereupon the Angel Commanded to Lord: Take ye this Honest Book of Truth to thine bosom and cherish it. Carry it forth into The Land and Lay it before Kings of Nations and Collectors of Garbage. Preach from it unto the Righteous, that they may renounce their ways and repent.

And though Omar did bid of the Collector of Garbage, in words that were both sweet and bitter, to surrender back the cigar box containing the cards designated by the Angel as The Honest Book of Truth, the Collector was to him as one who might be smitten deaf, saying only: 'Gainst the rules, y'know.

Wipe thine ass with what is written and grin like a ninny at what is Spoken.

Take thine refuge with thine wine in the Nothing behind Everything, as you hurry along the Path.       THE PURPLE SAGE       HBT; The Book of Predictions, Chap. 19
