Zaphod Beeblebrox Kids T-Shirts
He is from a planet in the vicinity of Betelgeuse, and is a “semi-half-cousin” of Ford Prefect, with whom he “shares three of the same mothers”. Because of “an accident with a contraceptive and a time machine”, his direct ancestors from his father are also his direct descendants. He was briefly the President of the Galaxy (a role that involves no power whatsoever, and merely requires the incumbent to attract attention so no one wonders who’s really in charge, a role for which Zaphod was perfectly suited). Zaphod’s just zis guy, you know?
‘Hey, you sass that hoopy Zaphod Beeblebrox? There’s a frood who really knows where his towel is.’ When we first meet Zaphod Beeblebrox, in chapter 4 of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy, he has recently been voted Galactic President - something he needs to achieve to accomplish his actual goal - to steal the Starship Heart Of Gold. A parody of the famous Hope poster which was used to represent the presidential bid by Barack Obama

"The very opening of Hitchhiker's Guide tells us how unimportant we all are. It starts with a mix of scientific terms: the western spiral arm of the galaxy is unfashionable, the sun has an unimportant planet at a distance of 92 million miles, and so on. If you know your astronomy, you know that's us. How often do we get a look at our planet from such a cold, distant, scientific viewpoint?"

The Babel fish is small, yellow, leech-like, and probably the oddest thing in the universe. It feeds on brain wave energy, absorbing all unconscious frequencies and then excreting telepathically a matrix formed from the conscious frequencies and nerve signals picked up from the speech centres of the brain, the practical upshot of which is that if you stick one in your ear, you can instantly understand anything said to you in any form of language, as said in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
