Like you, rufiki, I despise award ceremonies that go on and on with the announcers loving the sound of their own qwerty keyboards. So, after I've popped out to relieve myself and phoned my 88-year-old father (which I always try to do on a Sunday, being on his own since my mother died, oh, it must be coming up to four year ago now, though he does remarkably well considering, playing tennis at least twice a week and croquet in the summer - not bad at his age. Some of the youngsters struggle to return his backhands) I'll be back to tell you the identity of this year's avatar gong grabber...

The Press have already been covering the award ceremony.

The in-house magazine of the reporters chose to highlight Ancient Mariner's stellar performance and their reactions to it.

Of course, the Vatican press was not at all impressed and thought the Tiara should get it. They expressed their displeasure.

However, the anti-clericalist atheist press cottoned on to the breast imagery and published a rather nasty opinion piece.

The denizens of Hell could not quite understand the lure of the penguin and castigated the voters.

But the fluffy bunnies' own publication "Big Bright Sun" thought their electioneering tactics had secured the victory.

A new fansite has been started.

Whatever the press have had to say, however, the penguin has won.

Congratulations Smudgie!

I'm speechless.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, all you who voted for me. It was an honour even to be nominated by such an august body of people, and to be chosen from such a wide range of amazing avatars shows that you all have incredible good taste too.

I'd like to thank all those who voted for me, my worthy opponents, my loving (if somewhat evil) daughter Erin, my hamsters, the man who delivers the milk every morning (except weekends and Mondays, which is a bit of a nuisance), and, of course, Ancient Mariner for swapping the envelopes at the last minute. (I'll slip you the tenner later, AM).

(Just to be serious for a moment. I really would like to thank all those who make The Ship possible, and all the fantastic shipmates, who have actually kept me .. relatively... sane through the last five rather traumatic years - you are a great crowd of people and I am immensely grateful)

Stately and gracefully, the penguin steps forward to receive her award

--------------------
Miss you, Erin.
