Zaphod's just this guy, you know?

I listened to The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Tertiary Phase, last night on Radio 4. It was exactly what I had expected: funny, predictable (a bit too close to the novel) but exhilarating to be listening like in the old days. It also featured one of my favourite characters, Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged, with his long dark teatime of the soul.

I notice that kalypso_v says that she identifies with Arthur Dent. And on this thread of I love Books he is mentioned as a character whom people identify with. Others include Elizabeth Benett, Hamlet, Bertie Wooster. For myself I probably identify more with Zaphod Beeblebrox (in the 'I wish' sense probably).
