The Golgafrinchan telephone sanitizers are featured in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Ironically, after all the telephone sanitizers were sent off the planet with the rest of the "useless" Golgafrinchans, the rest of the society died off from an infectious disease contracted from an "unexpectedly dirty" telephone.

This geocache was hidden with special permission from Geocaching HQ.
