Arthur checked himself into a small motel on the outskirts of town, and 
sat glumly on the bed, which was damp, and flipped through the little 
information brochure, which was also damp. It said that the planet of 
NowWhat had been named after the opening words of the first settlers to 
arrive there after struggling across light years of space to reach the 
furthest unexplored outreaches of the Galaxy. The main town was called 
OhWell. There weren't any other towns to speak of. Settlement on NowWhat 
had not been a success and the sort of people who actually wanted to 
live on NowWhat were not the sort of people you would want to spend time 

Douglas Adams, "Mostly Harmless"
