In which a Docker Award goes to Oolon Colluphid

They gave out "Emmies" last night. So why shouldn't I give out awards too. (There's no voting - I'll just decide.)

For the character in Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy that I've always wished had a bigger part, The Docker Award goes to:

Oolon Colluphid, author of "Well That About Wraps It Up For God"

(Low, well-modulated disembodied male announcer voice, as Oolon approaches the stage: "Mr Coluphid has also written the trilogy of philosophical blockbusters, Where God Went Wrong, Some More of God's Greatest Mistakes and Who Is This God Person Anyway?)

P.S. Real Hitchhiker Fans might be interested in THIS, whatever it is.

P.P.S. In my copy Adams spells it both ways: Colluphid and Coluphid.

P.P.P.S Another H2G2 link. Way too much stuff.

P.P.P.P.S. Be sure to check for the animated Babel Fish Hitchhiker's Guide entry on the movie DVD, under bonus features.
