I think that's the third 1A in three weeks. Matt's certainly got a sense of humor.

Beam me up. This one was fun. I had to solve the meta before I could finish the grid.

The third time someone has used either that clue or that answer to represent those two co-workers in metas in the last 3 weeks.

Ah OK, yeas this week BOTH Mikel and Matt used it. They actually had three clues the same. Obviously DOC is a handy set of letters? Told you I was brain dead!
