I am a hoopy frood ’cause I always know where my towel is.

Do you know what today is? Today is Towel Day:

Towel Day is an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001). On that day, fans around the universe proudly carry a towel in his honour.

I love Douglas Adams! How can I get involved?

On the 25th of May, carry a towel. Where? Everywhere!

Proudly show the world you’ve observed Towel Day and upload a picture to Flickr, tagging it with “towelday” (most interesting – latest – group) or make a YouTube video (most relevant – latest). We look forward to seeing yours!

Want to help the cause? Tweet about #towelday, blog, post in forums, share a link in Facebook, link to the site… The more we are, the merrier!

I will have to dig out my copy of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy today and give it a read through. It’s been too long since I last visited with Arthur, Ford, and Zaphod.

  1. Damn, wish I’d known this before. It’s far too late in the evening to go outside with a towel.

    Think it would be ok to celebrate with, or atleast the closest I can get with my I have available, a pangalactic gargleblaster instead?

  2. I’m sure Adams would be more than honored by an attempt at a Pan Galactic Gargleblaster quaffed in his memory.

    You can find a number of Earth-bound attempts at a PGG recipe at this Wikibooks link.

  3. Having just starting to read Hitchhiker for the first time I’m being delighted by Adams humor. The paperback is a compilation of his five novels and contains 815 pages. It is a real waker upper when you are waiting at the hospital and it slams to the floor.

  4. Pan Galactic Gargleblaster

    Proving, once again, the human animal’s attempt to alter reality through drugs or religion.
