If you are ever tempted to venture to foreign plains spare a thought for the travel cufflinks you’re likely to need.
It’s our own version of hitchhikers guide to the cufflink, with thanks to Douglas Adams.
The first pair of cufflinks you’ll need on your journey are fast cars. On the basis that Earth is demolished to make way for a Hyperspatial Express Route. The fast cars make you feel good, remind you of home and will impress any foreigners.
In case the national flag or all flags are removed it would be wise to show that you come in friendship. The American and British flags can help.
In the absence of real currency, cufflinks showing the dollar, euro or pound sterling may be a useful part of your kit.
You may encounter friendly foreigners who are keen to learn about your culture. We would recommend ‘The road to ruin’ also known as ‘wine, women and song’. This is a great way to explain the key elements of culture.
If you’re a keen ornithologist ‘bird with worm’ is an excellent way to share your hobby. Perhaps a nature lover? The bronzed moose, big ass ant or tok tokkai beetle can explain your passion.
If you are worried about the end of the world, the dodo or skull may be more appropriate. Failing that, a globe of the world as it was…
Whatever happens, don’t panic.
