It's amazing, don't you think, that this is a website practically devoted to Douglas Adams, and his Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy works, but there isn't a single Entry about Galactic Hiker Slang? Well, there is now. And this is it. Right here. Er... right there.
|Strag||Non-hitchhiker.||"What a strag."||N/A|
|Sass||Know, be aware of, meet, have sex with.||"Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? Now there's a frood who knows where his towel is."|
|Hoopy||Really together guy.|
|Frood||Really amazingly together guy.|
|Knows where his towel is.||Formidable, to be reckoned with.||A towel has immense psychological value...|
|Teaser||"Teasers are usually rich kids with nothing to do. They cruise around looking for planets that haven't made interstellar contact yet and buzz* them."||"I got a lift with a teaser."||tease - To make fun of; mock playfully.|
|Photon||A universal expletive.||"What the photon is it?"||N/A|
|Zark||A universal expletive.||"Zark off."||Zarquon, the Great Galactic Prophet of ancient times, is thought of to be a saint, and is greatly revered throughout the Galaxy.*|
|Belgium||The worst, most rude expletive in the entire known Galaxy. Many people have been killed or have accidentally caused major galactic wars due to either, a) saying it, or b) accidentally saying it. Only acceptable use of the word is in serious screenplays*.||"Belgium."||It's just life.|
|Phreeow||A sign of astonishment or exclamation.||"Phreeow!"||N/A|
Well, leave a message below if you want me to add more to the list.
