Towel Day - SPN Style

In honor of Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, May 25th is Towel Day.

“A towel, [The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy] says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.”

Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

They are also good for wound care.

Washing up.

Evidence preservation.

Holy water spills.

Keeping things warm.

Protection from the elements.

And ghosts.

And our favorite reason to use a towel -- fan service.

Caps from many places including Home of the Nutty, Screencapped Net and Oxoniensis.
