Eccentrica Gallumbits is the far-famed triple-breasted whore of Eroticon Six. Some people say her erogenous zones start some four miles from her actual body. Ford Prefect disagrees, saying five. It is possible that the Big Bang was actually one of her orgasms. She wrote The Big Bang Theory - A Personal View by Eccentrica Gallumbits and It's Just One Boob After Another.
It was reported that Zaphod Beeblebrox, whom she described as "the best bang since the Big One," had delivered a presidential address from her bedroom on at least one occasion. She offers Bethselamin Lessons, if you telephone 69-000. It is also rumoured that Zaphod grew his third arm for her.
Pears Gallumbit, a dessert which has several things in common with her, is available at Milliways, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
