Moby Mugs
by Randall L. Whipkey

Moby Mugs are a collectors series of pottery likenesses of famous or colorful people. To decide what limited edition mugs to make each year, the company solicits employee suggestions in an annual contest; each person whose idea is put into production then receives as a prize the #1 mug made using his or her theme. Winter and four other employees, each of whom works for Moby, Inc., in a different capacity, submitted the winning mug designs for this year. Given the information below, can you find each 2001 Moby Mug originator's full name (first names are Barbara, Clay, David, Ron, and Toby) and position with the company, and the idea that will win him or her a limited edition #1 mug?

1. This is the second idea of Toby's that has been turned into a Moby Mug.
2. Neither David nor Muldar suggested either Marilyn Monroe or The Detective.
3. Kiln isn't Moby Mugs' chief financial officer or sales manager.
4. Ron and Dickens are delighted to have their first suggestions accepted for Moby Mugs.
5. The mug painter isn't the winner who thought up The Detective.

9. Clay, who isn't Dickens, isn't the employee who won with The Detective.

11. Ron and Kiln collect Moby Mugs as a hobby.
12. The shipping agent, who isn't Stein, won't be getting the Marilyn Monroe #1 mug.
