I thought I’d have a go at the T-Shirt Revolution 24hr Speed Tee Challenge – 1 Paragraph
The idea was to create a new T-shirt design before the 24 hours is up, in this case using a paragraph from a book on your shelf as the inspiration.
So I went to the shelf and picked out a book that I’ve been meaning to read again for ages. One of my all time favourites: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.
Here’s the paragraph:
One of the things Ford Prefect had always found hardest to understand about humans was their habit of continually stating and repeating the very very obvious, as in It’s a nice day, or You’re very tall, or Oh dear you seem to have fallen down a thirty-foot well, are you all right? At first Ford had formed a theory to account for this strange behaviour. If human beings don’t keep exercising their lips, he thought, their mouths probably seize up. After a few months’ consideration and observation he abandoned this theory in favour of a new one. If they don’t keep exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start working. After a while he abandoned this one as well as being obstructively cynical and decided he quite liked human beings after all, but he always remained desperately worried about the terrible number of things they didn’t know about.
