BOB: Lifetime Achievement

BoB's Your Uncle

The First (and Possibly Last) Best of Burque (BoB) Awards for Lifetime Achievement

We've rolled a plush red carpet out to the curb. The stars of Albuquerque are all dolled up in their finest designer dresses and suits. Anticipation is so high, if it stood up on tippy-toes it could brush its fingertips against the surface of Mars. Yes, fellow Albuquerqueans, it's time for the unveiling of our Best of Burque Lifetime Achievement Awards, otherwise known as BoBs. These Albuquerque fixtures win the same categories every single year. In most cases, they deserve to win (the exception being the beloved Bart Prince residence's long association with the Best Architectural Nightmare category). It's time to pay extravagant homage to their successwith an imaginary, highly collectible gold statuette of a monkey boxand give someone else a shot at the top.

Felix, roll the video tribute ...
