1. The original science-fiction
comedy. Written by the late Douglas Adams
, HGttG incorporated poignant observations
about the nature of Life, the Universe
and Everything with ridiculous slapstick. It began as a radio show, but was later made into
a book trilogy in five parts. The one steadfast rule
of the series is that logic
are for sissies.
2. A fictional device similar to a PDA
an encyclopedic database about everything you could possibly want
to know about, written
by underpaid or unpaid people not really concerned with accuracy (much like UrbanDictionary
). It comes in a box that has the words
"DON'T PANIC!" in large, friendly letters.
"Thanks to the Hitchhiker's Guide, I've become an expert in all sorts of useless crap. And I can fly."
