what do you mean, ‘you have to study’? what even is that?
That awkward moment when you leave a store without buying anything and all you can think is “act natural, you’re innocent”.
Like my previous post about the whale, this footnote comes from the book which has the original HGTTG radio scripts. I’ve not found any mention of the whale footnote out on the web. This footnote is mentioned in Wikipedia but I thought many here in the Tumblrverse may not know this.
I thought that this character should be a dignified, elderly man, weighed down with the burden of a secret sorrow. I wondered what this sorrow should be, and thought perhaps he might be sad about his name. So I decided to give him a name that anybody would be sad to have. I wanted it to sound as gross as it possibly could, while still being broadcastable. So I started with something that was clearly completely unbroadcastable, which was PHARTIPHUKBORLZ, and simply played around with the syllables until I arrived at something which sounded that rude, but was almost, but not quite, entirely inoffensive.
I wonder which came first - his description of the Nutrimat delivering a drink that was almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea or this.
