Faye's shirt "42"
« on: 30 Dec 2008, 07:50 »

Is this a Hitchhiker's Guide reference? The answer to the ultimate questions of Life, the Universe, and Everything?

Or is it just a number?  :?

Well, I'm no expert, but I'd wager a good deal of money that it's a Hitchhiker's reference.  Jeph seems to be pretty well read, so it would stand to reason that he'd make a literary/geek joke here and there.

Why would anyone have a shirt that said 42 on it?

Besides a sports jersey.

A regular sports jersey with "42" written on it would be kinda lame.

But...a Brockian Ultra-Cricket jersey with "42" plus the name "Adams" (or perhaps "Dent", "Prefect", or "Beeblebrox") would be awesome.

I have to agree. I'm geeky that way.

God, I hate jumping on bandwagons. Bandwagons totally suck ass.

But I would so buy a jersey like that.

We've just had this conversation somewhere else in the forum; everybody lost.

Squee for 42.
I have like, twenty quotes from that Guide put in my cell phone's notes, just in case I ever have need of them. Like when I'm pulled over! Or need to threaten someone with thermonuclear death. Or just want to confuse the illiterate and amuse the intelligent.
