Today iz Towel Day




Today iz International Towel Day. May 25th iz da day when fans decided to celebrate dat great author Douglas Adams wot writed da book The Hitchhikers Guide to da Galaxy. Iffen u haz not readed it u should it fun. In case u one of dem peoples wot haz to wait fur da moovie well The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy haz been madeded into a films alreddy.

 A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.”
