A potent mixed drink created by Zaphod Beeblebrox
. It's the alcoholic equivalent of a mugging -- expensive and bad for the head.
Here's what the Encyclopedia Galactica has to say about alcohol. It says that alcohol is a colorless volatile liquid formed by the formentation of sugars and also notes its intoxicating effect on certain carbon-based life forms.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy also mentions alcohol. It says that the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
It says that the effect of drinking the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is like have your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.
Hands down the most popular sports car ever built in America. Started as a limited run of 300 roadsters (all Polo White with red interior) in '53 and has since evolved into a world-class, Nurburgring
-tested machine that can torch all competition in its price range.
"Take any sports car within twenty grand of the COrvette's sticker ($47K), and the Vette will flat smoke it. We think the Corvette may also prove a match for the upcoming $70,065 321-hp Porsche 911 and could very possibly outgun the $79,865 350-hp 911S. Oh, and don't betagainst the Vette's earning another 10Best spot."
--Car and DRiver Magazine, in their September 2004 road test of the new sixth-gen Corvette (C6)
Perhaps the most famous brand of baseball bat in the world. Beloved among office drones for that scene in Office Space
when the three heroes take their infamously misfiring printer out into a field and bash it apart with said bat.
To beat the holy hell out of someone or something with a Lousiville Slugger (or any kind of bat) is "to go Louisville" on them/it. Example:
"Christ, did you see them go Louisville on that printer?"
A license to behave like a douchebag
. Notable holders include President George W. Bush and Attorney General John Ashcroft.
Ashcroft's prosecuting people for medicinal marijuana use? He must have invoked his writ of douchebaggery.
A&W? Barq's? Mug? Pansies. Best root beer in the world is Thomas Kemper. Drink up, son!
Henry Weinhard's is 2nd, IBC is 3rd
. A fantastic eatery that turns the End of Time into dinner entertainment.
"...and the Universe," continued the waiter, determined not to be deflected on his home stretch, "will explode later for your pleasure."
Ford's head swiveled slowly toward him. He spoke with feeling.
"Wow," he said, "what kind of drinks do you serve in this place?"

A horrible stinking world destroyed by an overabundance of shoe stores. It is the site of two important things in the universe of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy": 1) the Total Perspective Vortex (exposes the sheer, utter, incomprehensible vastness of the universe to the hapless soul strapped inside, destroying his or her soul); and 2) future site of Milliways
, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
(on the Total Perspective Vortex)
"You ever had a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster
?" asked Zaphod sharply.
"This is worse."
"Phreeow!" admitted Zaphod, much impressed.
