The Pan-galactic Bacon Blaster: The effects of consuming this dish are likened to having your head bashed with a bacon wrapped gold brick.

Chit Chat: Mostly crap.

Chit Chat is an illusion. Chit Chat at lunchtime, doubly so.

Chit Chat - it's what you get if you multiply six by nine.

The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy has a few things to say on the subject of bacon.

Bacon, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have. Partly it has great practical value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a brush, but very very ravenous); you can wave your bacon in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, bacon has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his bacon with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, 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 hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker 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 bacon is is clearly a man to be reckoned with.


With sincere apologies to Douglas Adams.

The submarine hung in the sky in much the same way that pancakes don't.
