Universums sämste poet

The very worst poetry of all perished along with its creator, Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings of Greenbridge, Essex, England in the destruction of the planet Earth.
- Douglas Adams, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

När boken började som ett radioprogram så gick titeln till Paul Neil Milne Johnstone (1952-2004). Han var poet och klasskamrat till Douglas Adams.

The dead swans lay in the stagnant pool.
They lay. They rotted. They turned
Around occasionally.
Bits of flesh dropped off them from
Time to time.
And sank into the pool's mire.
They also smelt a great deal.
- Ett exempel på Johnstones lyrik.
