Oodles of Droodles
Welcome to Oodles of Droodles!
Who says art isn't amusing? Just take a peek at all those daffy drawings by Roger Price who also came up with a nice named for them, "Droodles".
What is a droodle? Well according to its creator, "A Droodle is a borkley looking sort of drawing that doesn't make any sense until you know the correct title."
And, for those have two left feet, sing off-key, and are all thumbs, why not take up droodling and make new friends. What do you mean you don't do fun?*! Dare to Enter the delightful Den of Droodledom!

Never in the history of illustrated art has so much been owed to so little.

"A map is like a Droodle - learning to find the hidden meaning in a map."
Quote from "Putting Interpretation on the Map: An Interpretive Approach to Geography" by Heidi Bailey.
C'mon I Dare You To Draw A Droodle
It's a whole lot easier than connecting the dots, crossing the t's and dotting the i's!

Little Link List for Daring Droodlers
I spy with my little eye (and with the help of my handy dandy theodolite), a polka dot tie! - No silly, it's looking at a giraffe through a second floor window!
No It's Not a Blockhead, a One-Armed Bandit, Or a Paper Clip Caught in a Book.
If you identified this one, it shows you are artistic.
The alternate title to this Droodle is found by turning the drawing upside down. It then becomes:
Midget Playing Trombone in Phone Booth
If you turn the picture on its side, counterclowise, it is subject to a third interpretation:
Deceased Trombone Player
Not only is this an extremely clever Droodle but it affords you a certain amount of exercise which you probably need.

Not Another Darn Doodle?
What the heck is that?
"If you got any of the titles correct give yourself 20 points. If you understand any of the titles after seeing the correct answer give yourself 10 points. If you think any of them make sense give yourself 5 points. If your total score is 2 or over you are ready to start making your own Droodles."

Tell me the truth my dear, have you ever been bored twiddling your fingers?
Have you ever gone bonkers gazing at your navel?
Did you ever take a walk on the wild side, satisfy your creative urge, or dared to draw a Droodle?
