Pan-Galactic Towel Day

Jerry Stratton, May 22, 2006

May 25 is towel day, so make sure to bring your towels. You never know what’s going to happen, and I don’t think anything gets the hang of Thursdays.

Towel Day is celebrated in honor of author and satirist Douglas Adams’s extended lunch break “to benefit the Megadodo Endangered Species Burger Bar in Southend”.

I’ll be bringing my official Hitchhiker’s Guide movie towel this year as well, despite my disappointment in the movie. I expect to retire it next year. To help assuage my disappointment I’ll also be mixing a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster and sleeping the whole thing off the next day. I’m going to call in early for lunch on Friday and just not come back.

With the right planning, it is possible to get the hang of Thursdays.

May 4, 2013: Towel day is on its way

Make sure you have your towel. Towel Day is only two weeks away! I don’t remember seeing this video two years ago, so I’m posting it now.

And don’t forget your Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters either!
