Okay, let’s see if I can post this quote without a whole lot of commentary. I just don’t think it’s all that necessary, but I might not be able to resist.
Excerpts from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams:
“It was for the sake of this day that he had first decided to run for the presidency, a decision that had sent shock waves of astonishment throughout the Imperial Galaxy. Zaphod Beeblebrox? President? Not the Zaphod Beeblebrox? Not the President? Many had seen it as clinching proof that the whole of known creation had finally gone bananas.”
“Zaphod Beeblebrox, adventurer, ex-hippie, good-timer (crook? quite possibly), manic self-publicist, terrible bad at personal relationships, often thought to be completely out to lunch.”
“Only six people in the Galaxy knew that the job of the Galactic President was not to wield power but to attract attention away from it.
“Zaphod Beeblebrox was amazingly good at his job.”
Is it just me or is this way more relevant and kind of scary-funny now?
