Hitchhiking Zone sign by caycowa Hitchhiking Zone sign by caycowa
Sometimes in life you must ask yourself those important questions; such as 'where is my towel?'

"....a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: nonhitchhiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, washcloth, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet-weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with." - Douglas Adams 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'

This is made out of LoL, have you thought about making t-shirts? Or would that bring you more legal trouble than it's worth?

I tried, but they refused to be associated with... I think the word they used was hibo.. hheeboo... something like that. While I have no idea what a heebu is, I did get the impression I wouldn't want to meet one in a darkened ally or shady hallway anytime soon.

That's too bad, after they allowed themselves to be associated with the creation of the Heart of Gold I was sure towel promotion would be the final frontier.
