What is your doodle ?

DISCLAIMER : The female reading fraternity can take a seat, relax and curse the author of this post in all rudimentary fashion. As seen as by the other joes, this joe is on a plane north bound to the wildernesses of Siberia, being called on an international assignment bordering on the process of the segregation of the emulsification, resulting in the constipation of the constitution of the nation.

Meanwhile, when you are not busy being a La Dexter boy genius in class, you also revert to whiling your time away. Be it the Short Message Service, your constant sniggering at the earnest jokes of your neighbor, or randomly laughing away at non-existent PJs (read poor jokes). But what I haven’t seen is the subject of DOODLE success.

Wondering what a doodle is? Before you tap your fingers away on the keyboard opening a new tab, let me save some time for you. A doodle is an aimless drawing which results from the spur of being in a long unproductive activity or sheer boredom. Its basic requirements are a paper and a pen/pencil. Examples can be seldom found in the corner spaces of the notebooks and are not always available for scrutiny.

The six basic types of doodles are:

1 The scientific doodle
Scribblings of this kind often involve chaotic imaginations thriving on the border of randomness. Entropy in common say has a flipside to it as well. It can perfectly conceal emotions of different kinds and seem rather distorted and aimless to an outsider but it makes perfect complicated sense when viewed by intellectuals. Specimens include Sheldon Cooper( courtesy :The Big Bang theory aired on CBS)

2 The artistic doodle
Renowned painters like Picasso and Da Vinci inspired such minds to doodle out their minds during classes. The paradigm of such artistry is a result of creativity. Yup, If you guessed creativity, you hit the nail on the coffin. Such doodles are seldom a pleasure to view at, and don’t be surprised if girls surround you 2(pi)radians if you are accustomed to such drawings.

3 The romantic doodle
Doodles involving an arrow and a heart , some flowers and a little poetry to follow the simple love constitute this doodle. Examples are seldom those aimless hippies who keep day-dreaming about angels in their lives. Ah yes ! If you are thinking what I am thinking, Jessica Alba and Elisha Cuthbert fall under the list. High Five !

4 The philosophical doodle
These doodles often involve the momentary swishing of the friction bound pen with the paper resulting in a err uhhmm, say stepped doodle, a sun emanating rays or a religious holy prayer not exactly written in a proper prayer format. Such doodles are the object of curiosity for many students as they mistakenly take it to be a holy disciple’s work. Somehow, I am inclined to think that most of the scientific thinkers somehow reverted to philosophical doodles when their brains were not being fried!

5 The abusive doodle
Girls are rather nonplussed with these doodles. After all, you wouldn’t expect a girl to scribble “Sucker !!!” on the the corner of her Math notes. Constant male abuses lie playing around with synonyms of the F-word and other stuff included.

Finally, last, and definitely the most speculative is one of our very own doodles. The number six on the list is:

6 The Barney Stinson doodle
Doodles belonging to kinds which draw their inspirations from the holy symmetric curves of the divine female, her shapes and figures being given intricate detail and her luscious beauty paid unduly attention. Most of the scribbles keep wavering between being overtly flirtatious and ridiculously funny. On a serious note, these scribblings are better kept to thy without public disclose. Some of the doodles scream out “Aint I awesome ?” in the legendary Stinson way. For more information on the same, please refer to Barney Stinson from the TV soap ‘How I met your mother’.

Other non categorized doodles such as writing your own name (signature doodle) and miscellany can be discussed in the comment area. Wondering another issue- “Which class currently in NITH makes us doodle the most ?” *Pondering head*


  1. There is a type of doodle called - **keeping boredom away doodle*. This can be defined as - randomly drawing something, flowers, arrows and the likes. Or you can simply write the first letter of the subject, and make caricatures out of it. Helps you stay away in a boring lecture and also gives the impression that you are taking now.

  3. doodles. i doubt they are worth the thought. or the post. or the effort in writing it.
    though i dont doubt their uh..usefulness. :)

  4. they graduate from paper to any available, viewable, patch of skin, and furniture too, on a more disgusting level.

  5. Ah yes, the furniture doodle which remains a permanent mark passed on by the years. And yup, you hit the nail right in the coffin when you said the level of disgust is the highest when it comes to scribblings on benches. Looks like I missed quite some doodles :P

  6. THAT is my doodle and it is unlicensed here. Please either take it down or buy the appropriate license here...
