apparently it's in reference to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It explains it in the wiki article.

* The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy itself defines a towel as "about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have". Its uses, as listed, include: wrapping it round you for warmth; sunbathing on it; sleeping under it; wetting it for use in hand-to-hand combat; waving it in emergencies as a distress signal (see below); and wrapping it round your head to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal because this is such a "mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you". You can also, of course, dry yourself off with it, if it still seems to be clean enough.

* Also noted is a towel's psychological value: "For some reason, if a strag [Hitch hiker slang: strag = non-hitch hiker] discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel, he will automatically assume that he's also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet-weather gear, space suit etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that might accidentally have been 'lost', on the grounds that anyone who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still know where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with."

Stop commenting about Matt's making fun of himself.

The "...towel?" comment was something referred to NUMEROUS times in the history of this forum, and you, in fact, are all a bunch of noobs for thinking that Matt, of all people, wouldn't understand the Guide.

Get out.
