    Default Mr. Tweleve

    I'm starting to feel a little silly being the only one to bequeath awards here, but it's high time that we finally made this official. And so, the award for Mr. Tweleve 2005 goes to ... envelope please ...

    Doc!

    (Bet you thought I was going to say Jet, didn't you? Ahh, peaches!)

    It wasn't really close. Under the Hall of Fame nominations thread, the chorus of Doc supporters was almost deafening. As beckasue1999 put it, maybe we should have just called it the "Doc fan club” thread.

    Now that I seem to have gotten this contest started, I feel compelled to offer up some sort of award. But, alas, I have no autographed first-edition hardcovers or state-of-the-art metal detectors to spare. Actually, all that I have to offer up is a used vacuum cleaner and free physical exams from my wife (a 4th year med student). Seeing as how Doc is a real doc and all, he probably wouldn't have much use for either.

    As an alternative, I figured that maybe, just maybe, Google could help out. And wouldn't you know it, an image search for "Mr. Tweleve" turns up one, and only one, image -- that of Marcus Williams.

    Mr. Williams is, I think, more than qualified to be the Tweleve's own Oscar model, especially given that "he has tweleve years of experience in the fields of accounting and financial investing ... plays the saxaphone and dabbles in a game of poker or two in his spare time."

    But I'm not so sure that Doc will want to print out his model shot and hang it next to the assorted diplomas and certifications. So, as a last resort, I called upon my friends at the Royal Institute of Navigation. When I explained to them Doc's sophisticated methods for navigating the 5x5 grid, they became transfixed and soon after insisted on fashioning a 24-carat gold medal in honor of Doc, or Sir Doc as they now call him -- "the man with the master plan."




    Congrats, Doc. You’ve earned it!

    Perhaps some authentic looking sculpey tokens would be useful here:

    Congrats Doc, and excellent presentation, turkeymonkey!

    Now I wonder who will fill Doc's shoes when the NEXT award goes out upon release of the Treasure Trove sequel?
    (and notice sequel has a "q" in it, so my first advance theory is.... a different letter for exclusion from the Polybius grid!)

    No one can fill Doc's shoes! And I'm sure he'll still be wearing them for the sequel anyway.
