[color=#FF0000]Triumvir[/color] elections threatened to be a little beige this month with the self-styled Dictator Doc (nee Doctor, nee Tik Tok) running for reelection initially unopposed.Luckily, everyone's favorite northern Australian, Qldvespanut, stood up against the forces of predictability and ran against him. After a sometimes feisty campaign, Doc was returned as Triumvir for another term.

Meanwhile, everyone's favorite Harry Potter fan and [color=#0000FF]Minister of Hitchhikers[/color], Anysound, departed our shores and was replaced by Working Class Ruler, otherwise known as everyone's favorite southern Australian who isn't Crushtania.

And the Courts are back! Having spent a few months in the shop getting a tune up and spit-polish, the MHA successfully re-adopted our independent judicial body and elected three shiny new Court Officers. In a narrow race, the successful first officers are Akbar, Belari and Umbra.

So after all that, you can check out our current Government line-up below.

[color=#FF0000]Triumvirate: gasgiant405, Julia Rose Vicious, Doctor Doc[/color]

[color=#0000FF]Minister of Hitchhikers (Members): WorkingClassRuler
Deputy: RoyalGuard[/color]
[color=#00FF00]Minister of Towels (Economy): Dynasty
Deputy: Nath1194[/color]
[color=#FF8000]Minister of BabelFish (Diplomacy): Nishiyoshi
Deputy: Kapamilya [/color]
[color=#8000FF]Minister of Bad Poetry (Communications): Loki Grim
Deputy: wolfbrother[/color]
[color=#FFFF00]Minister of Destructor Fleets (War): Mr_Subliminal
Deputy: AndyDe[/color]

[color=#00FFFF]Speaker of the HHA: EarlOfSandon[/color]

Court Officers: Akbar, Belari, Umbra

When the MHA was in it's infancy, the term "hoopy froody" was a source of pride for Hitchhikers. It was the completely gibberish, completely perfect description of who were during the first three years of our existence. It was the definition of that era. You could sass that hoopy Hitchhiker, he was one frood that always knew where his towel was.

You don't get that kind of pride and history through just a few individuals - there is a whole list of people throughout MHA's many years who were the perfect definition of a hoopy frood. Hitchhikers that many of you outside of the MHA may also remember. (And some of you [i]are[/i] those people - just in new homes, doing new things.) Indeed, even those people were the tip of the iceberg; the MHA had a culture of good-hearted diplomacy and hard-working alliance-building that raised this little group of Douglas Adams fans into a sanctioned alliance.

It wasn't always fun and easy, but we got there.

However, over the past few years, the term "hoopy froody" had become as overloaded and weighted as the MHA itself. It became an [i]excuse[/i] to allow for laziness, apathy, and inactivity. It was the reason why nothing got done; the justification for eating that extra slice of cake when we should have said "NO SIR!" Along the way, we also lost respect for ourselves and each other. We started treating each other like enemies. The term and the alliance with it, became the antithesis for what it should have been.

Now, I've spoken before about the coming of a New MHA. I wish I could say we were close to emerging from this dark period, but there is still work to be done. A large part of that work will be putting the pride and love back into who we are. We have to remember what it means to be a Hitchhiker; we need to reignite that passion for building the alliance, improving ourselves, and loving who we are.

Some alliances who have been in this position before have used revenge or statistics as their motivation. For myself personally, I'm looking forward to the day when MHA can truly call itself hoopy froody again; when I see the respect and love has returned; when we get back to being that hard working, tight-knit and still fun-loving community we once were.

And to that end, I dedicate this edition of [i]Don't Panic[/i] to my fellow Hitchhikers - my true love.


Are you single this Valentines Day? Are you looking for love? Are you often perturbed by the apparent over-abundance of males on Planet Bob in comparison to the apparent lack of females? No really have a think about it - how is it even physically possible to sustain the human race with a ratio like ours?

Anyway, here at [i]Don't Panic[/i] we like to celebrate love and give every single person out there a shot at love this Valentine's Day. And we're going to do it 90's Dating Show style with six mystery men straight out of Planet Bob! They are hidden behind a screen with a few key details given about each Bobchelor. If any single folks (ladies or men, we don't judge) out there like what they hear, feel free to contact them for a date.

Without further adieu, we bring you the 2012 Bobchelors:

I love you, you love me that’s why:

flying fish flap flanderously flashing flacking furious faces fainting farting fractures famously faming farms facing false falcons flopping forty five fickle forests frolicking freely flamboyantly floating floatation foaming fantastic fantasies falsifying flocculating flexible fluctuations fearing fast fasteners faking faster fobs fasting fastening flashes flowing flam from far flung flags failing fifty frocking frog freezing fascists forming faintly falling felled fellows fairing ferries for fairies ferrying fulvous fillers filling fondue fountains flap flailing forever feeling feed freeing feeders feeding feathers fervidly forcing fevers from fantasizing fishing flies frying French fries full from fermentation for fine Finland follies faking fruity fruits following frivolous faucets. Make it no surprise that condensation condenses collisions colliding contractions conning condescending cons conspiring cones caking calluses caring cars caned capes coining corporate cash canning coupled corncobs calling cows counting carpets casing crows calibrating countless candles collecting coconuts claiming companies coming with considerate grapes mapping million mile mousse moose milking massive multitudes mailing measly measles motivating multicasting mangos mightily mooning merry muddles mining mills mooring miniature milliliter mountains fishily loving all fours!

A disclaimer: Here at [i]Don't Panic[/i], we may from time to time print something that is the complete opposite of truth or fact. However, as this is the official MHA publication, any incorrect information is therefore the official incorrect information and thus [i]becomes[/i] truth and fact. Anything written here that is wrong is henceforth wrong for good and we don't give a dingoes kidneys if it is completely contradictory with reality.

[i]Don't Panic[/i] isn't wrong, reality is. We're just making it right again.

All the best.

Caption: "Arthur looked over the guide to describe the momentous occasion on display in front of him. After flipping through a few dozen pages he found it. It appeared this was the ritual cleansing after an encounter with a "Scutterbug." Joy was ripe for all to see on the faces of those whom were being cleansed."

Once again, MHA, you outdo yourselves. The explanation of posters does wonders.

Caption contest:

"HEY! You don't have a d*ck! Get the hell out!"


"Is that a food fight, sweet! Just like at the prison! Oh look, a quarter."
