My towel story*

Filed under: Life — kadiphd @ 9:24 am

Digging up my CV I found a funny logo I submitted for Eesti Ekspress competition last year, and got a big red bath towel as a prize for having won the first place. And lost the towel. But got a better one afterwards 🙂

Anywayz, here’s the winning piece, even more thematical a year later. Took me less than a minute to google a shipwreck and another one to replace the original “ship wreck”:

*with tribute to Douglas Adams:

“….a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: nonhitchhiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, washcloth, 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 hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker 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 towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.”
