International Towel Day Quiz – May 25th is designated Towel Day in celebration of Douglas Adam’s life. From the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have… 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 clearly a man to be reckoned with.”

Actor Stephen Mangan (Winner of Celebrity Mastermind on this subject) sets the questions for us (he won’t be there unfortunately but sends his regards for this fine event). Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster to the winner and tea towel from those fine people at Discworld and the Angh-Morpork Consulate in Wincanton. Towel is necessary for entry (and may be rented on the door).
