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 and causality are for sissies.
2. A fictional device similar to a PDA which contains 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."
