Voting for the Most Doomful of Doodles (Updated)

Okay, no more entries. Y’all have six to choose from (just scroll on down the line) and one of them (my sketchy sketch of a Colt Commander) doesn’t even count.

Vote once, please, but feel free to encourage others to vote for the one that you think is the best. Don’t forget: the winner gets a gift certificate to Amazon. I’m hoping they buy me something nice (but that’s really unlikely, isn’t it?).

Update: And just in case you like clicking on links to make new windows pop up in your browser, here are the links to each of the entries and to the original post.

Entry 1, in which we learn that stick people are people, too. It says so right in the name, in fact.
Entry 2, in which “ptew, ptew” makes us giggle. 2
Entry 3, in which no one dares guess what “Papa H Special” means.
Entry 4, for which we can’t vote.
Entry 5, in which we learn that I can’t tell the difference between a Prada purse and a broom. Which is surprising. 3
Entry 6, in which aliens invade the planet. 6

The Original Entry. Which sounds far more grand than it actually is.

Updated Again: Pimped by Jed. Nicely done (even if it does break the code of silence). Linked by our good friend, Steve, who, incidentally, likes the one with curves.

LATE NIGHT UPDATE: The winner, by popular acclaim, is Aliens--Jed’s masterwork of doom doodling brilliance. He will be properly awarded his Amazon gift certificate tomorrow. Hopefully he’ll let us know what he buys with his prize.

Maybe an art book.

Congratulations, Jed. You captured the spirit perfectly.

I like 6 best.

I like the one with aliens, but I fear you because of your illustration. So I vote for DAVID! Loyally! And not in any way out of fear!

on Aug 28 2007 @ 08:25 AM

One of the things I’ve always admired about you was your willingness to stand on principle no matter the cost.

(And I’m counting this as a vote for 6.)

on Aug 28 2007 @ 08:52 AM

I really like Pwet, Pwet!  It’s funny to say, and I have been saying all week now.  But I must admit that Aiyee!  totally smokes it.  My vote?  #6.  Aiyee!

on Aug 28 2007 @ 09:40 AM

Ptew, Ptew is going to be hurt.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 09:59 AM

I gotta go with #6 too. It’s the essence of childhood doodling. Props to #5 though.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 10:25 AM

I’m sticking with ptew! ptew!, whatever number that is.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 11:47 AM

That would be number 2.

And I second those mad props to number 5.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 11:57 AM

You know, if #6 showed a Macintosh (which we all know is compatible with alien-spaceship-control software), I’d have had to vote for it. But as it is, I’ve got to go with #5, because babes with guitars* cannot be denied.

Even though it’s more New Yorker than Sixth Grader.

* Or shovels, brooms, or Prada handbags.  Whatever.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 11:58 AM

Doug, you make an excellent point.  Babes with guitars ARE super hot.  Tipsy stay at home moms with guitars and little guns are even hotter.  But, alas, I don’t think I can vote for myself.  Shit, I really can’t keep a secret.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 02:09 PM

David, fix that <s>, please.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 02:09 PM

You had me at “tipsy.”

on Aug 28 2007 @ 02:18 PM


on Aug 28 2007 @ 03:15 PM

I’m surprised. I pegged you as a #1 kind of guy.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 03:32 PM

Can I vote for myself? If I were running for president, I’d vote for myself.

Otherwise, 2.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 03:43 PM

I liked #1, but the sarcasm was a little too obvious. #2 looked more like something that an actual kid would draw. As much as I like #1, I think that #2 is better for this contest.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 05:06 PM

ONE vote?  For that fine ass doodle unknown person #5 submitted?  I feel I must argue in defense of that wonderful piece of doodle.

The rules clearly state: Well, it has to feel genuinely doodle-esque, has to have a sense of youthful enthusiasm, and has to be oriented towards something that cuts, goes boom, or otherwise offends the fearful.
One: So doodle-esque.  Who doesn’t doodle boobies and hips?  Crazy people don’t, that’s who.
Two: Youthful enthusiasm.  Which could be read as “make it look like a 5 year old did it” or could be interpreted more creatively, as perhaps, “catching on to the dreams of a child”.  Every girls dreams that she’ll be swanky enough to sweep her floors in between happy hour with THAT waste-line and boobies way up there at 32.  None of them actually get to.  That’s Youthful Enthusiasm at it’s best, I’d say.
Three: Offends the Fearful.  I think that doodle may actually be wrong on seven full, different levels.

There.  I have stated the case of doodle #5.  Not that I had anything to do with it.  I’m just saying…

on Aug 28 2007 @ 06:00 PM

You made your case for that wonderful piece of art rather well. Feel free to lobby your friends to vote for that one that I’m sure you didn’t have anything to do with. All votes will be counted.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 06:32 PM

I’m sure Steve would vote for #5, if he were here voting.

However, I have to point out that the reaction of most men to #5 (is she 5 of 9) is more along the lines of “Vavoom!” rather than “Aiiieeeeeee!”. And the gun in the garter just means she won’t run screaming when I pull mine out. Well, okay, I’m not among the fearful.

But I still think it’s a cool drawing. Who did it anyway?

on Aug 28 2007 @ 06:48 PM

Well, maybe someone need to get Steve over here.  And maybe no one thinks “Aiieeee”, but I bet more than one of you thought “Bounce”.

And the person who did it is no where near as cool as the person who did 6, Jed.

on Aug 28 2007 @ 06:51 PM

I know its late, but here’s my entry, it is in more of a modern realistic style ...

But I painted with these own hands of mine, really.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 07:35 AM

Oh, yes, entry five is the clear winner.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 08:25 AM

Martini. Curvaceous hotty. Cute little gun.

Seriously, how could you resist?

on Aug 29 2007 @ 08:49 AM

Stephen, you are my god damn hero.  Or, at least, the hero of the unknown artist in question.  Which isn’t me.  Or something like that.

Hey, doesn’t Steve’s vote count as two or something?

on Aug 29 2007 @ 11:40 AM

i vote for #6, the aliens.  way good.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 01:39 PM

The aliens have taken a commanding lead.

Of course, the vote total is a little low. If I’d known there would be so many visitors, I would have put one of those nifty little voting scripts up.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 01:49 PM

I think most of those visitors are me, stalking the results.  I seriously need a hobby.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 02:46 PM

I vote for No. 6. As I commented on that page, I owe no less to our courageous soldiers who keep trying to defend us, even in the face of certain death.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 02:55 PM

Mr. Lady:
Re: Needing a Hobby
I recommend taking that cute little gun to the range.  If that isn’t hobby enough, then I recommend you investigate handloading rounds for the cute little gun.

And if that still isn’t enough, you can always take up brewing beer.  You’d have to beat the men off with a stick.

Hmmmm...I seem to channeling the double-entendre comment string again.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 03:18 PM

Nathan, we’re all good at something.  And if I’m going to the range, I assure you I’m packing something much larger.

Fire away, boys.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 05:36 PM

Probably two larger somethings…

on Aug 29 2007 @ 05:54 PM

Who would have thought that the doodles of doom would have brought out the naughtiness in you?

on Aug 29 2007 @ 06:43 PM

Robin, I just got around to checking out that link.

Hubba hubba. Damn.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 07:55 PM

#5 is totally hot!
Hey Mr. Lady, who knew you could doodle so!!

on Aug 29 2007 @ 09:31 PM

I’m going to go ahead and take that as a vote for #5.

on Aug 29 2007 @ 09:34 PM

David, I’m quite the artist, aren’t I?  Almost looks like a photograph ...

on Aug 30 2007 @ 10:54 AM

Robert, you are the master. Such a wonderful eye for shapes, too.

on Aug 30 2007 @ 11:39 AM


I’d like to thank my producer—yes, THE Bruce Dickinson ...

Okay, thank you to everyone who voted for me. That was a lot of fun. And a big thank you to Dave J., for hosting the contest, and putting up the prize.

Now I just have to auction off the original on e-bay. wink

on Aug 30 2007 @ 03:51 PM

Maybe we’ll do the “More Cowbell” contest next.

on Aug 30 2007 @ 03:55 PM

Congrats Jed, it was my favorite.

Also thanks to those that voted for “PTEW PTEW”.

That was me. smile

on Aug 30 2007 @ 04:03 PM

That was yours?!?

....is it too late to change my vote, then?

on Aug 30 2007 @ 04:25 PM

Thanks, Trench.

So, I promptly ordered the Stargate SG-1, Season 2 boxed set. One of my favorite shows, and if I had cable, I’m sure I would have watched it religiously. As it is, I caught it sporadically at a friend’s house, and borrowed Season 1 from another friend a while back.

It was either that, or “Anatomy for the Artist”, but I figure with Amanda Tapping on board, SG-1 can do double duty. Not to mention Terly Rothery—R’r’r’r’r’r’r’r!

on Aug 30 2007 @ 05:59 PM

Am I too late to put in my vote for #5? My love for that picture has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I grew up with Mr. Lady, who is totally not necessarily the artist who drew it.

It’s because martinis and sweeping/prada bags with guns is my life.

on Aug 30 2007 @ 06:43 PM

No more voting.

Next time you most vote in a timely manner. And show up at the Blogger Bash. Because we missed you, too.


on Aug 30 2007 @ 07:16 PM


I’m started out as something of an SG-1 heretic: I didn’t start watching the show until they announced that Claudia Black and Ben Browder were joining the cast (I’m a total Farscape fanboy). I got the first SG-1 DVD through Netflix… and didn’t stop until I had watched every episode. I’m now a total SG-1 fanboy. SG-1 is now one of my favorite shows, I have seen every episode at least twice, and I regularly spam Dave with suggestions that he give in and start watching, too. Had I known that you were going to buy SG-1 with the prize I would have voted for you - twice!

Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to amuse myself with thoughts of Amanda Tapping and guns (something that you get quite a bit of in SG-1)…

on Aug 31 2007 @ 11:14 AM

I know, Molly, it’s totally my life, too.

Trench, I really really wanted to vote for you.  And I was totally gonna.  And then Jed had to come in with his Bounce and his Aiiieee and his curly-cues of doom and trump us all. 

Damn you, curly-cues of doom.

on Aug 31 2007 @ 02:19 PM

Personally, I thought the burning bodies were the pièce de résistance.

C’mon Dave, get on the SG-1 bandwagon! The series is actually much better than the movie. Terly Rothery.

on Aug 31 2007 @ 04:10 PM

It IS the burning bodies.  It’s that their flesh is comsumed and burned into the atmosphere in curly-cue form.  It’s freaking awesome.

on Aug 31 2007 @ 06:11 PM

You know, if #6 showed a Macintosh (which we all know is compatible with alien-spaceship-control software), I’d have had to vote for it. But as it is, I’ve got to go with #5, because babes with guitars* cannot be denied.
