The flavor text on this card is a reference to this passage from Douglas Adams' Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

Situation: The council have come to knock down Arthur Dent's house. He is lying in front of a bulldozer in protest (and to stop them doing it). A council official, Mr. Prosser, is trying to convince him to get out of the way...

Prosser: "But Mr. Dent, the plans have been available in the planning office for the last 9 months."
Dent: "Yes; I went round to find them yesterday afternoon. You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call any attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody about them or anything!"
"But the plans were on display.."
"On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them!"
"That's the display department.."
"With a torch!"
"Ah well, the lights had probably gone.."
"So had the stairs!"
"But look, you found the plans didn't you?"
"Yes. Yes I did. They were on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard'!"


Frizzler said:

Note that the situation with Arthur Dent's house and the bulldozer is a hint on what comes later in the novel:
The intergalactical highway (which has a certain impact on our earth). The plans for this had been clearly posted...
(I don't tell anything more, maybe somebody hasn't yet read the novel and still wants to read it).

I love this card. This combined with trojan horse (automatic tags are nice) is my go-to "win condition" in the starter-pack battles that I have with my friends. I just hate that darn armored fridge...
