Listen up all you froods and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Fans!
May 25th is coming up and that can only mean one thing…Towel Day (unless it’s your birthday too, in which case, Happy Birthday!) Our Towel Day competition is back for 2014! If you haven’t heard of Towel Day, it is a celebration of the life of Douglas Adams and his infamous cult novel, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, observed by his fans carrying a towel around all day. We want to challenge our lovely and creative customers to design your very own towel.
In the book, Adam’s states that the value of the towel is “about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.” He goes on to list the many uses a towel has…here are some of our favourites:
“Wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat.”
“Wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal.”
“Wrap it around your head to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you – daft as a brush, but very ravenous).”
“Dry yourself off with it if it still seems clean enough.”
– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
As well as being one of the most useful items on the planet, as Douglas Adams has pointed out, we also think they make rather wonderful personalised gifts.
