And here I thought the triple-breasted whore was from a different fandom…

Life. Don’t talk to me about life!

Please pardon my friend....

herrbgone is referring to a minor, off-screen character from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: "Eccentrica Gallumbits, the triple-breasted whore of Eroticon Six."

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eccentrica_Gallumbits#Eccentrica_Gallumbits

Eccentrica Gallumbits

Known as "The Triple-Breasted Whore of Eroticon Six", Eccentrica Gallumbits is first mentioned in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when Arthur looks up Earth for the first time in the guide. The entry for Earth is under that of Eccentrica Gallumbits. She is heard about again during a newscast that Zaphod Beeblebrox tunes into shortly after stealing the spaceship Heart of Gold. The newsreader quotes Eccentrica describing Zaphod as "The best bang since the Big One." It was also reported in Fit the Ninth of the radio series that Zaphod had delivered a presidential address from her bedroom on at least one occasion.

Pears Gallumbit, a dessert which has several things in common with her, is available at The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. This dish is likely a play on Peach Melba, which is likewise named for a famous woman.

Some people say her erogenous zones start some four miles from her actual body. Ford Prefect disagrees, saying five.

This character never actually appears in the series, but is mentioned by various characters in all five of the books. In the 2005 movie, however, we see her giant legs as Ford attempts to reason with her on Viltvodle VI.

In a possible homage to the series, the film Total Recall features a triple-breasted prostitute (played by Lycia Naff); it also features a number of other references to the Guide, such as wrapping a towel around one's head to avoid being found (synonymous with the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal).

She is referenced in an issue of the Legion of Super Heroes.[citation needed.]
