The one drawback from having a Babel fish in your ear is that it allows you to understand Vogon Poetry.

Paul Walnuts

On the plus side, there may or may not be a gin & tonic in your immediate future. That's something to look forward to.


I was just thinking about that.

Himmarshee Street Live

The Vogon captain sounds almost like The MCP in "TRON".

Barry Bend

In the other movie its hilarious that Arthur is immune to vogon poetry. Probably because he's heard worse.

Cast Iron Chaos

Except it was so horrible, even the Babel fish couldn't effectively translate it. "Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes..."

Lord Davrox Thank you so much! I sincerely feel like an idiot but I guess without at Babel Fish or an actual brain sloshing around up there, it pretty much just goes out the other ear


@Lord Davrox Yes, a paraprosdokian delight from dear old Doug x

Lord Davrox
