“Well, the Earth Mark Two in fact,” said Slartibartfast cheerfully. “We’re making a copy from our original blueprints.”
There was a pause.
“Are you trying to tell me,” said Arthur, slowly and with control, “that you originally … made the Earth?”
“Oh yes,” said Slartibartfast. “Did you ever go to a place … I think it was called Norway?”
“No,” said Arthur, “no, I didn’t.”
“Pity,” said Slartibartfast, “that was one of mine. Won an award you know. Lovely crinkly edges. I was most upset to hear about its destruction.” – Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
