42 Days of Christmas
« on: December 09, 2010, 06:11:48 PM »
With "Countdown to Towel Day 2010" being such a popular success, or rather in spite of it being an unpopular failure, I introduce to you "The 42 Days of Christmas!"

Here is how it works, simply add the next line to the song, increasing numerically by one each time, until we reach 42 Days of Christmas.  It is not necessary to wait a day in order to add then next entry (else we would be well after Christmas), but it is forbidden for an individual to enter consecutive lines in the song.  Each line must contain reference to something related to Douglas Adams, any of his works, or related to this forum or its members.

If possible, paste the previous song up to that point into your message (appropriately modified), just as you would sing when doing the more traditional version of the song.

I'll get things started off...


On the 1st day of Christmas, a Hoopy Frood gave to me... a robot with Genuine People Personality.
