41: From Oolon Colluphid to parties

Join Mark and the Jons as they traverse the P section of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and take a sneaky pitstop at O.

Oolon Colluphid

Oolon Colluphid is the author of heretical works of non-fiction. We’ve covered many of his books already, but titles include Where God Went Wrong, Some More of God’s Greatest Mistakes and Who is this God Person Anyway?

Orion Beta

Orion Beta is noted for its madronite mining belts, where Ford learned to play a drinking game involving telekenesis and obsene forfeits.

Pangalactic garbleblaster

The Pangalactic Garbleblaster is the best drink in existence, according to the Guide.

Parallel Universes

Now, the Guide has had a great deal to say on the subject of parallel universes. Very little of this is, however, at all comprehensible to anyone below the level of Advanced God.

The first thing to realise about parallel universes, the Guide says, is that they are not parallel, because being parallel doesn’t mean anything. It’s all part of the Whole Sort of General Mishmash, but I thought it worth bringing up since it’s sort of noteable by its absencen.


The Paralyse-o-Matic is a bomb of some sort. Zaphod throws one into the crowd that comes to watch the uneiling of the Heart of Gold.


In the third book, Arthur gets hit in the small of the back by a party that’s into its fourth generation, and has taken to conducting raiding parties of nearby planets, depleating them of stocks of cheesey snacks and booze.
