Mark Zuckerberg snuck an amazing Easter Egg into his Congressional testimony, feigning ignorance of the most basic questions about his own company a whopping 42 times, in tribute to Douglas Adams and his classic work of comedic science fiction, "The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy."

Fittingly, Wired was the first publication to notice this hidden mickey, and they've done us all the service of summarizing all 42 of Zuck's cute, playful evasions.
