Poghril was a planet in the Pansel System.
The Starship Heart of Gold's Infinite Improbability Drive caused two hundred thirty-nine thousand lightly fried eggs to materialise there. Unfortunately the entire population had died of famine, with the exception of one man who died shortly afterwards of cholesterol poisoning.
This riddle was the only ray of sunshine in the otherwise rotten life of the Poghrils. One Poghril would say to another: "Why is life like hanging upside down with your head in a bucket of hyena-offal?" Whereupon another Poghril would reply: "I don't know. Why is life like hanging upside down with your head in a bucket of hyena-offal?" To which the first Poghril would say: "I don't know either. Wretched, isn't it."
On the whole the loss of the Poghril tribe was not among the great ones in the history of the Galaxy.
