The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was: > Great Oracle, who knows a hundred recipes for drinks more powerful > than a pan-galactic gargle blaster; who can calculate improbability > levels to one million decimal places in his head; who, although your > brain isn't literally the size of a planet, gets a headache just > thinking down to my level; and who's a hoopy frood who *really* knows > where his towel is, please share with me but a tiny fraction of your > light of knowledge and tell me . . . will the shortly forthcoming > Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie be any good? >
And in response, thus spake the Oracle: } Answering this question was somewhat difficult, as your humble oracle } had to evade a Somebody Else's Problem Field just to get into the advance } screening. } } All I can say, though, is that the producers will be first against the wall } when the revolution comes. }
Notes: If you're not a fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide books, you probably didn't understand most of that. Sorry. One response received before I got the above (from someone who apparently wasn't a fan):
} Heck it'll be great! The Oracle gets a 4% cut in the action-figures } profits, a whopping 12% in lunch-pails, a decent 3% in tee-shirts, } and a controlling 67% of any breakfast cereal tie-ins that come to } fruition. Consulting is the way to go. The public is so starved } for entertainment anything with even a whiff of college-student } approved coolness is Big Bucks, Big I say!! } } You owe the Oracle some well deserved thanks for the Fish-Sticks } sales jingle he penned that you'll soon be hearing everywhere.
