I've heard of this before... Ah ha! It was The Daily WTF
but [his] condemnation of it is far more overboard than their silly request.
I'm not so sure. The "I don't like how my work hours line up with daylight, so everyone should change their clocks twice a year" crowd seems far more overboard to me.
Silly ideas like "the cushions are flotation devices" are the reason people need to listen to safety announcements rather than assuming that they know everything.
Oh, the irony. They do tell you about the floating, removable cushions in the safety announcements.

Except for the movie. They had to wait for Adams to die so he would no longer be able to stop them from mutilating it.
Some fun quotes from various points it the movie's development:
Reitman thinking that forty two is NOT a good answer, and that instead the movie needs a big finish, Douglas understands that he is trapped.
"It's the worst script I've ever read. Unfortunately, it has my name on it... whereas I did not contribute a single comma to it.... I'm appalled to think how much harm that script have done my reputation over the years."
And after Adams died:
Jay Roach has hired Karey Kirkpatrick, the guy who wrote or re-wrote the screenplays of "Chicken Run", "James and the Giant Peach" and "The Little Vampire" to rewrite douglas adams draft.
I cannot conceive that anybody will require multiplications at the rate of 40,000 or even 4,000 per hour ... -- F. H. Wales (1936)
