No Spoon Is There
There not only is a spoon, but its significance cannot be overstated — it is far more significant than the towel, let me tell you ¹.
With a towel, all you can do is hitchhike across the galaxy and dry yourself off; what do you do when, at the swimming bath, or in the ship’s galley, you are desirous of eating a yoghurt? Your towel will not aid you there.
But, should you find yourself, in either location, in need of a towel there will be a veritable multitude of the hungry, who, foolishly, neglected to bring their spoon with them and are only too willing to swap their towel for your spoon, so that they too may replenish body and soul with yoghurty ambrosia.
And, should you find yourself in danger of being struck by lightning, once again, your towel will not aid you — whereas, a spoon you may cast upon the winds at the critical moment, such that its metallic nature shall draw the gods’ ire from your good self and vent itself thereupon in your stead.
Ignore the warnings of the Temple of the Pot Noodle … the spoon is your saviour — get one now, before it’s too late!
¹ Why else do you think the spoon should be of such significance, if not to draw you along the path of enlightenment, hmmmm? The towel is merely absent, whereas the spoon is significantly so.
