Towel Day is May 25th!

UPDATE

 

THIS STUFF HAS BEEN WON. Please to congratulate @CommanderFrost, who won the stuff above, and @bondidude, our runner up!

 

A Flickr album of all the Towel Day pics is in the works, so stay tuned!

 

 

To winhave won ALL the stuff you see here:

 

On Tuesday, May 25, tweet a link to a pic of you & your towel* tagged #towelday to @thinkgeek by 5pm EDT. We'll pick a random winner (using the Improbability Drive, of course).

 

*TOWEL NEED NOT BE SPECIAL, but it should meet these requirements:

 

"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-bogglingly 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

 

And yes, there's a Tauntaun and lightsaber in here--May 25th is also Geek Pride Day in honor of the first Star Wars movie released in 1977.

 

The full list o' prizes:

42 ringer t-shirt

42 Utility Towel
